NO!!!! All babies develop at different rates and for the first few months of life your baby will receive all the nutrition and energy his or her body needs from breast or formula milk. However, from FOUR to SIX months old your baby may not get all the calories, iron and other nutrients he or she needs from milk alone or may require increasingly large or frequent feeds to do so. At the same time most babies will be able to tolerate semi-solid foods such as baby rice. Introducing solid foods earlier than four months is not recommended, as your baby may not be able to digest the food properly. If your baby was born prematurely, you should calculate the four months from your baby's original due date. It is important that you don't rush into weaning as a result of pressure from parents or friends and that you are guided by signals from your baby. These signals include: * Being unsatisfied after a full milk feed * Demanding increasing and more frequent milk feeds * He or she can control their head movements * Attempting to put things in his or her mouth * His or her weight gain slows or levels out without a period of illness to explain why. * After a period of sleeping through the night your baby begins waking in the night with hunger If you are unsure or concerned about when your baby is ready to begin weaning you should talk to your health visitor.
