How to wean a baby?

Weaning can happen in three ways:

  1. It can be a mutual decision – the easiest and most comfortable way to do this is when baby starts to show an interest in food
  2. Mother-led weaning
  3. Baby-led weaning – when baby stops showing an interest in breastfeeding.

Solid foods can be introduced to a baby from 6 months.  To aid the weaning process it is important to take it slowly, offer plenty of cuddles and support.
