What are the signs that my baby is ready for solids?

Most babies will be ready to start eating solid food at six months of age.

Several signs indicate your baby is ready to start eating solid foods. If your baby is able to sit up without props or other assistance, can hold his or her head up and turn it from one side to the other, and shows interest in what you’re eating (or food in general), he or she may be ready to start eating solid food. Every baby is unique and develops at his or her own pace, so make sure you follow your baby’s lead. If you’re unsure, check with your doctor.
