Can I start meats before 6 months?

Postnatal, Your questions

I hadn’t heard that you shouldn’t start meat before 6 months of age, but I did! What are the consequences? I feel bad for not having known! Should I just give my baby vegetables for lunch? I don’t want to give her fruit until she has started meat, as I am anxious she won’t want meat after! Thanks, Valerie


I don’t know how old your baby is, but you can stop giving her meat if you just started, and yes, vegetables for the meal and fruit for dessert. You can give her fruit, as it balances the meal, and fruit is at the end of the meal, not at the start! 😊 You can restart meats when your baby is 6 months old, as she will be ready. Don’t worry about what you have done. Now is the time to look forward!
