when do we get to know that baby is ready for weaning ???

Sweta Nagubandi

Ragini, there is no specific time frame for weaning. it's entirely our choice.  my lil one weaned herself at 2.4 yrs of age. I will personally suggest u to feed till atleast an yr

Mother's intuition and judgement is the best.

maybe Ragini means starting solids? ideally you should start after 6 months while breastfeeding alongside.. it is best to feed bm atleast till 2 years,but that is entirely upto you...


Hi Ragini. Usually mid way by 5th month moms can try to give semi solids. The key is to test and gradually increase. There are so many useful articles you can refer to 12 Dos And Don'ts Of Weaning, The Ultimate Weaning Guide for infants by Dr R K Anand: Part 1. Hope you find these useful
