Weaning & Food Allergies


Weaning is the process of introducing solids to babies diet’s, in addition to his or her milk feeds. The optimal time of weaning is based on a number of considerations, including the babies age, gestation at birth, health, development and growth rate. Weaning should start by six months but not before four months in healthy full term babies.

As your baby is offered new tastes and textures they have the opportunity to learn to like those tastes and get used to different textures. Babies will do this at different rates.
