The recommended age to start feeding your baby any solids.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) the recommended age to start feeding your baby any solids is six months – exclusive breastfeeding, or if necessary, infant formula is entirely sufficient until this age.

Mom and baby can establish a positive new experience with the introduction of solids, but it is important that they aren’t introduced too early (before four months) nor delayed for too long, as solid foods contribute to optimum growth and overall health development of your baby.

Your baby will be consuming between 800ml and 1000ml of milk per day up to the age of six months.

As you adjust their milk feeds and replace them with solid foods, the milk intake can be reduced between 600 and 700ml a day, and to about 500ml a day by the time they are one year old.
