Feeding Your Baby 6 Months to One Year

The most important food in your baby’s first year is breast milk. Breast feeding can continue for 24 months and beyond.

Video: Breastmilk and other drinks for babies. Find out how long you should offer breastmilk to your baby and when other drinks may be given.

Around six months, your baby will show signs that he or she is ready for solids. If your baby was born prematurely, use his or her corrected age.

Keep things simple and start solid foods when your baby is ready.

Video: Starting solid food.  Learn about your baby`s cues that tell you he or she is ready to start solids. Get tips on how to breastfeed while introducing solid foods.

Video: Iron rich foods for babies.  Learn when to introduce iron rich foods and which iron rich foods should be offered first.

Video: Learning to self feed.  Find out when your baby is ready to self-feed and which foods are safe to give.
