From pure baby rice to pear purée, discover which foods are best for weaning and when to get started in our video guide.
Rolling, sitting up, weaning – get ready for some major milestones at around 6 months
At around 6 months, your baby will start to develop at an increasingly rapid pace. They’ll become physically stronger and more mobile, and you’ll notice new sounds as they begin to ‘babble’.
Learning to swallow food
Swallowing is a significant sign your baby is ready to wean. When they're ready, smooth foods will help them to swallow their first mouthfuls.
