When Should Baby Start on Solids?
The American Academy of Pediatrics says you should start your child on solids between 4 and 6 months. Within this window, look for some of these developments:
- Can sit upright and hold up his head
- Is curious, looking at everything around him
- Has mastered tongue movement
- Seems hungry after getting a full day's portion of milk (eight to 10 breastfeedings or about 32 ounces of formula)
