Weaning can happen in three ways:
- 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
- Mother-led weaning
- 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.
