Give it a while.
While your baby is showing some signs of readiness, it seems they have a little bit further to go before they are truly ready.Babies under four months are typically not developmentally ready to start purees, cereal or solid foods (unless otherwise discussed with your pediatric provider).In order to start solids, I want your baby to:1. be interested in solid foods2. be able to sit upright for the entire meal3. have good head control all of the timeBased on your answers, your baby may need *a little* more time until they are ready.If your baby hasn't hit these developmental milestones, but is 6+ months old, please speak with your baby's pediatric provider.Disclaimer: this is not medical advice and does not replace an official evaluation with your baby's medical provider. You should discuss all information with them prior to starting your baby's first bite of food.Meet ErinHey there, I’m Erin Moore.
