Baby Weaning Course
So you are asking yourself ‘What age should I start weaning my baby? Knowing when to start giving your baby solid food can be a confusing time for parents. Recommendations have changed over the years so whilst our parents and/or grandparents might have started weaning their children at 4 months, research suggests that there is often no need to start that early. If you are starting too early you may be just making more work for yourself – weaning is quite a time-consuming and messy business! Solid food is required when breast milk or infant formula is no longer enough to meet the nutritional needs of the growing baby.
Introducing complementary foods too soon (before 4 months) can increase the risk of infections (gastrointestinal, respiratory and ear infections) and allergies, as your baby’s digestive system and kidneys are still developing.
Occasionally, paediatric specialists may advise slightly earlier weaning (at 4 months), for example with some babies at high risk of food allergy.
This may be a lot of information to take in but not to worry, we are here for you every step of the way with our current baby weaning course. Perfect for those first-time parents wanting to stay prepared and obtain the knowledge to help keep them healthy throughout their childhood. Also great as a refresher for second-, third- and forth-time parents!
