When should I give solid foods to my baby?

Postnatal, Your questions

Dear Marie, I am a mother of a four-year-old child. I just had my second, and all the directives for introducing solid foods have changed! I am all mixed up, and am not sure what to do. What do I start with? When exactly? Do I let my baby do it alone? Allergies? Yikes!

I have so many questions….Régine


Hahaha! You are so funny, Régine! Your feelings are shared by many parents who are starting this development stage for their baby. Indeed, recommendations for introducing solids have changed over time as new research and discoveries are made. However, the underlying logic remains the same. I have written an article called Baby Diets: When to Introduce Solid Foods? I think it will help you find answers to your questions.
