I have a 3 month old who feeds really well. Have noticed that she is very interested in food and will watch and open mouth when I am eating. Is it too early to introduce solids to her??
The Australian recommendations are that solid foods should not be introduced until closer to six months, though can be given between 4-6 months. At three months her milk either breast milk or formula needs to be her primary and only source of nutrition. What she’s doing in terms of checking you out when you’re eating is normal and a sign that she’s getting ready to eat solid food. But although she seems to be telling you what she’d like, you know better what is good for her and solids at this age and stage of her life will overload her gut and she won’t be able to digest them normally.
Check out the Huggies site for more information on introduction of solids. Be patient, you’ll have all the time in the world to give her solids in another month or two but for now, she’s just a bit little and young.
