Health Tip

Is Your Baby Ready for Solids?

Here's how to tell:

  • Your child can hold his or her head steady when sitting.

  • Your baby's tongue thrust reflex is gone (this is the reflex that prevents infants from choking by pushing food out of the mouth).

  • Your child is between 4 and 7 months of age.

  • Your child sometimes opens his or her mouth when food approaches.

  • Your child is interested in food when others eat.

  • Your child is able to swallow baby food placed on the tongue.
