Stephanie Tolley MS CCC-SLP, speech therapist at the Pineville office of Child and Family Development, recently reviewed an article from Eat Right about introducing solids to your baby.   

The article highlights how to know when your child is ready to begin eating more varied food textures and provides developmental expectations at 6 months, 9 months and 12 months.  

Stephanie shares, “I find a lot of families are unsure about when to introduce solids. I love that this article comments on what to look for so you know when baby might be ready as every child is different and some children may be ready sooner or later than others. I think it‚Äôs also a nice outline of ages for introducing appropriate foods.”
