The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends starting your baby on solids at 6 months and the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, recommends starting solids foods between 4-6 months old.

We recommend to talk to your baby’s pediatrician to first determine when your baby is developmentally ready to start solids, whether it be 4, 5, or 6 months.

There are some telltale signs that it's time to get your spoons ready!

  1. Your baby can hold their head up well when propped to sit.

  2. The tongue thrust reflex has disappeared.

  3. Your baby shows an interest in table foods.

  4. Your baby is able to make back-and-forth and up-and-down movements with the tongue.

  5. Your little one is able to open wide.

When you start to notice your babe is showing the above signs schedule a chat with your pediatrician or bring it up in your next well-visit.
