Weaning is the process whereby a child learns to take nourishment other than his mother’s milk. It starts when the child is introduced to foods and drinks in addition to breastmilk, and ends when he finally stops nursing.
Around the middle of his first year, once he can sit up unsupported and pick up food for himself, your baby will probably want to try eating everything the rest of the family is eating! Starting Solid Food includes the latest information on how to introduce your baby to foods in addition to breastfeeding and how you can help him learn to feed himself. Also included are suggestions for suitable first solids and information on nutritional needs.
