Advice on weaning is given in the Centres groups and on home visits.  Introducing your baby to solid foods should start when your baby is around 6 months.  It is a really important step in your baby’s development, we have Start for Life Booklets at the Centre so even if you are not attending a group please feel free to drop in and pick up a booklet.
