Aptamil baby rice

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.

Stay away from soft-boiled eggs

When your baby starts weaning, it’s important to avoid foods that can trigger an allergy or make them ill, like soft-boiled eggs, honey and salt.

Aptamil Organic baby rice’s smooth texture makes it the perfect first food for babies aged 4–6+ months

With expertise in every spoonful, we’ve added nothing to our pure organic baby rice but a little vitamin B1.

Important notice

Breastfeeding is best for babies. Infant formula is suitable from birth when babies are not breastfed. Follow-on milk is only for babies over 6 months, as part of a mixed diet and should not be used as a breastmilk substitute before 6 months. We advise that all formula milks including the decision to start weaning should be made on the advice of a doctor, midwife, health visitor, public health nurse, dietitian, pharmacist or other professional responsible for maternal and child care, based on baby’s individual needs.

Breastfeeding is recommended for the first 6 months of life. The Department of Health recommend weaning at around 6 months. Please speak with a healthcare professional before introducing solid foods.                                       

Use Growing Up milk as part of a varied balanced diet from 1 year.
