5. When is It Alright to Start Solid Foods?

Solid foods are usually introduced at around 6 months of age. For some babies, your doctor may recommend a little cereal before 6 months if they're showing early signs of being ready.

You must be really careful when introducing solids too early, as it can easily lead to constipation. Even at six months, you really need to watch your baby's diapers closely for any signs of constipation. Give them a little water with their food for added security. Giving them water also helps to ensure that they will like water as they get older, which is very important!
