Make a spot for Baby at the dinner table
During mealtimes, position your baby in their high chair next to the table so they can participate and watch you eat. Readiness for solids can be impacted by your baby’s interest in trying the foods your family is eating, and your baby learns so much by watching and imitating you. Time at the dinner table helps your baby learn what it means to eat different foods. If your baby is developmentally ready and interested, begin to offer small pieces of soft foods from your meals. This is a wonderful way to begin supplementing your baby’s diet as you continue to feed Baby formula or breastmilk.
*Only introduce solids if Baby is interested and developmentally ready.
