So what exactly is the introduction of solid foods (or “diversification alimentaire”)? It is that time when parents or caregivers start offering other types of foods than milk (breastmilk or formula) to babies.
Until yesterday… bébé was only drinking milk, that was easy enough to follow. And not too much to think about. With the introduction of solid foods it’s a whole new world for you, and your baby: new tastes, new textures, all sorts of shapes and colors!
Because we never say it enough, every baby is different and their appetite will vary depending on their age, and also on their level of fatigue, mood, health or more. Pretty much like how our appetites vary from day to day.
Safety at the table is one of the biggest concerns for parents and is often the reason why they are afraid to start their babies on finger foods. Knowing the basics for safe and baby-friendly solid food introduction will ensure a relaxed experience for everyone!
