Although North Port pediatricians generally recommend starting infants on solid foods when they are around six months of age, there are important developmental milestones that must be reached before your baby can take this step.
Even if an infant’s digestive system is ready for solid food, the baby must be able to safely swallow it. A baby should be able to sit with assistance but hold his or head up on their own. Without head and neck control, eating solids is difficult and dangerous. Many Port Charlotte pediatricians also advise parents to wait until an infant shows interest in what other family members are eating.
If you are unsure if your infant is ready for solid food, check with your Port Charlotte pediatrician. Remember that for the first year your baby’s nutrition will still come primarily from breast milk or formula.
