Best First Foods For Your Baby: From Birth To 12 Months

Though babies can start eating solid foods in 4–6 months, don't stop feeding them breast milk (or formula) till they turn 1. Start with pureed rice, oatmeal, potatoes, pumpkins, carrots, apples, pears, bananas, meat, fish, or tofu in tiny quantities. Proceed to mashed and soft foods when the baby turns 6 months, and after they turn 8 months, give them 3 meals a day, with carbs, proteins, vitamins, and minerals. Keep an eye on the change in their stools and any sign of allergies.
