when to feed meat? Lock Rss

Hi all, when is it ok to puree meat with other vegies to feed bubs? I've tried the Heins 4-6 mth foods with meat but they smell kinda funky so made my own. Bubs liked it but im concerned his tummy isnt ready for it - he's now 5 1/5 mths.

Thanks just need some advice.

Given that these days they're not recommending even introducing solids until 6 months, I'd leave off the meat for another few months. Personally I started meat at 9 months, but that's just me. I guess you'll know if bub can't handle it.


You are so right, that tinned or jarred meals can be a bit 'funky' - love that word !!! Some just smell almost like vomit - so I never really bothered. I started meat about 7 months as a finger food - chunk of chook breast and then ham off the bone. Shorlty after I started to prepare my own meat puree and veg.

I waited till 6 months, however lots of babies are started earlier with seemingly no dramas. I always kept in mind that the window to teach them to eat is 6-9 months, so there is no hurry to get them exposed to different foods. Their little taste buds are so new that any food, even pumpkin every day is a big 'buzz' to them.

I would suggest for you to hold off on meat. There are loads of veggies and fruit you can try. By introducing a new one every 3-5 days, you will find that when you run out of veggies and fruit to try, its probably a good time to try some dairy and meat.

Best of luck.
