Most babies are ready for solid foods when they're around 6 months old. Until then, your baby will get all the nutrients he needs from breast milk or infant formula.
At the 6-month mark, look for these food-ready signs:
• He can sit with support and can control his head.
• He no longer pushes food out of his mouth.
• He can close his lips over a spoon.
• He can move food with his tongue from the front to the back of his mouth.
