Do

  • Continue with their morning milk feed, so they’re not too hungry to enjoy breakfast*
  • Use 2 spoons – one for you and one for them to practise with
  • Try using their usual formula milk in cereals made with milk – they’ll love the reassuring taste*
  • Give water in a beaker so they get used to having a drink with their meal

*From 6 months, your baby needs around 500-600ml of milk a day

Don't

  • Worry if they only eat small amounts at first
  • Give your baby peanut butter or foods containing gluten before they are 6 months old
  • Give your little one soft-boiled eggs or runny yolks before they are 12 months old
