Baby weaning is new and exciting for both you and baby - but be ready that it may take them a few weeks to get used to solids, so build up slowly.
If you've chosen weaning over baby-led weaning (opens in new tab) know that once baby becomes interested at around 6-and-a-half to 7 months, you may want to invest in a baby food maker and use this baby food meal planner to plan your baby's meals and feed them a variety of nutritious and tasty purees in addition to their usual milk feeds.

Always go at your baby's pace and never force-feed them. If you're worried about your baby's weight or have any questions, ask your health visitor.
