When Is The Best Time To Start Weaning A Baby


Some babies should be weaned as soon as they start to thrive and it’s safe for them. Others take longer; the temperament, health issues or age of your baby will determine when you can safely stop breastfeeding. Babies who are too young (less than six months old) may not yet have enough verbal skills to communicate their needs, so if you’re still nursing at six months, it may be a good idea to continue breast feeding until four or five months. You’ll know that he is ready because he will start expressing interest in other foods and playing with other types of food like sippy cups and spoons.
