Re: starting too late?
What can you do?
You didn't wait too long. It is recommended that solids introduction begin at 6 months. Until around a year, breastmilk (or formula) alone meet all a baby's nutritional needs, and solids are only for fun with new tastes, textures, and motor skills. So if your baby eats solids, that's great! And if she tastes them and then spits them out, great! And if she refuses to taste them, preferring to explore them with her hands, still great! It's all part of the learning experience.
At 6 months, quantities of solids should be small. A couple of teaspoons per day is more than sufficient- and again, if all your LO does is play with them, that's okay! Many babies do not start eating significant quantities of solids until they are well over a year.
