According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, "most babies are ready to eat solid foods at 4 to 6 months of age." Be sure to get the go-ahead from your doctor before embarking on feeding baby solids. Some babies are ready at 4 months and others need to wait it out for a year. We think sharing meals is a great way to start instilling your family values around food--why not start with baby's first meals.
