"The only way our little girl will eat her dinner is when it's in a Sinchies pouch!! A happy baby means a happy Mummy! Thank you for the amazing products" - Mady D
It’s that special and somewhat daunting time—starting your baby on solids. For the first 4-6 months, or thereabouts, of your baby’s life, they’ve survived purely on breast milk and/or infant formula. And now it’s their first big food leap, into the wondrous world of solids! Even though your baby may be showing interest in starting solids, actually getting the food into their mouth can be a whole other challenge. At first the food is likely to end up everywhere other than in their tummy: on their face, in their hair, on the furniture, even on the family cat or dog. So when you're starting your baby on solids, here’s what you’ll need to make it an easy and smooth transition.
Why the texture of the food is important when starting solidsWhen your baby is first starting solids, the texture of the food you offer them is quite important. Up until this point they’ve only consumed liquids, so by offering foods that are close to this in texture, they will feel more familiar to your baby. This means starting your baby on a whole lot of pureed food.
