Ready For Solids

Baby is ready!

Many moms hold their babies during meal times so that they have the opportunity to watch and learn from other family members. When she is ready, she can sit in a chair on her own and watch. However you do it, your baby will love joining the family at meal times!

Talk to the WIC staff about good first foods for your baby. Once your baby reaches six months of age, WIC will provide baby food in her food package. If your family has a history that includes food allergies, there may be other foods you'll want to avoid. Talk to your baby's doctor.

When she shows signs of being ready, put some food in front of her and see what she does.
