The World Health Organisation (WHO),1 the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC)2 and ABA all currently recommend 6 months of exclusive breastfeeding and then the introduction of solids while breastfeeding continues. Exclusive breastfeeding means no other food or drink.

Many mothers are confused about introducing solids as they get different advice from different authorities and health professionals.

There are generally two questions:

1. What age should a baby be introduced to solids?

2. What foods should be offered and when?

 Come and learn more about how and when to start your child on solids as well as some tips to help.
