After a few weeks getting the hang of solid food, baby may be ready to move on to stage two weaning. At this stage, it is important to introduce new flavours to help avoid baby becoming a fussy eater! It is even more important to introduce lumpier textures to encourage chewing. Here are a few pointers to bring your baby safely in to the second stage of the weaning process.

Foods to Consider

New foods to consider at this stage include the following:

Continue to avoid foods with sugars and salt, but food with gluten is acceptable for babies over six months old. While baby may not be too keen on many of these new foods, variety is important. Avoiding bitter foods now will only make introducing them later even harder.

Once baby has started to accept their new foods and grown in confidence, you will be ready to move on to stage 3 weaning.
