What age do you start weaning at?


Someone said to me that I could maybe introduce baby rice for lo at 12 weeks along side his night time bottle but i thought this is a bit early? whats the best age?



  • The guidelines are 6 months, they also say to exclusively breastfeed with no formula milk, or any type of solids for 6 months too, and personally speaking I dont know anyone who has ever managed to achieve that.

    The earliest they recommend is 18 weeks or so I thought, but it could well be 17 weeks. They're forever changing things.

    Weaning really is a personal choice, but if you're thinking of doing it before 17/18 weeks then I would speak to a HV if I was you.
