I tried puree when LO was 4.5 months. Technically its safer to start upon approval by your pd/polyclinic issues advisory on weaning at 5 months but my LO could sit up assisted and was showing too much interest in our food, she smacks her lips and salivate when she sees us eating so we decided to try her. Made her avocado blended with freshly expressed breastmilk for a start - we blended till it's pretty runny and observed if she could swallow properly when feeding. It went well so we proceeded to thicken the blend and introduce other new fruits!

Cool thanks for sharing! 💖Will try out using own bm. How long can it last if kept in freezer? Or fridge?

6 months is the rule of thumb. Baby must be able to sit independent and support/hold his head up on his own without any trouble. Reason being that baby needs to be able to swallow properly while sitting or he may gag/choke on the food.

Hey, You can start introducing solid food to the baby. You can try various combinations with mashed potatoes and fruits etc.

Around 5 months+. PD told me to start as baby is able to sit and is showing interest on adult food

5 months, when my LO was able to sit supported and can support her own head.

24 week can start allergy testing - single food at a time.
