Ready for Food?

Babies have their own ways of communicating. When your little nurser grabs the banana from your hand and begins to slurp on it, it might be time for their first bit of solid food. This should never be before six months of age. If concerned about nutritional gaps that solid food will leave, start with rice cereal. The dry form will allow you to add breastmilk to it, making it more nutritional for baby.
