Food chart with recipes and finger foods-6 to 8 months

It’s natural for you to be eager to start solids but wait till your baby’s head is well supported and your baby is atleast 41/2 or 5 months old.

I started with Nestum rice when my son was 5 months and 2 weeks and continued till he was 6 months old to switch to other foods.

Your pediatrician would advise you with what to give first but later you have to design your own meal plan.
