Your Baby, Week 23

Some babies are ready to begin eating some solid food between four and six months.

Once you’ve gotten your doctor’s OK, start with infant rice cereal and introduce foods to baby one at a time, so you can check for any allergic reactions.

When your little one pushes the away from the food or spoon, he’s telling you he’s done.

If more has ended up on the floor and on his face than in his belly, don’t worry. He’s still getting his nutrition from formula or breast milk right now. Making a mess is part of the fun!
