    Solid Food for babies

    Hello everyone!

    It's my first baby and I have no idea about proper feeding. When is the right time for me to start feeding my baby with solid food?

    if you mean pureed food, check with your pediatrician, its generally around 4 months if the baby is formula fed or 6 months if baby is breastfed.

    Finger foods start a little later around 7~8 months when baby can pick up things using a pincer like grip.

    The rule-of-thumb we were given was 6 months. And baby was breastfed.
