When do we introduce solids to the diet

Birth to six months

It is too early to introduce solids if your baby:

  • Cannot hold her head up.
  • Is still satisfied by her milk feed (a milk feed should satisfy her for 3–4 hours).
  • Does not show any interest in food.
  • Is less than six months old.

The early introduction of solids does not help your baby sleep through the night. Dropping the night feed is more likely a developmental milestone and has little to do with feeding.

The WHO recommends exclusive breastfeeding from birth to six months, with the introduction of complementary foods and continued breastfeeding thereafter.
