Frequently Asked Questions

Introduce Solid Food to a Baby

1. When is to start solid food for a baby?

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) says you can start your child on solids between 4 and 6 months, yet the answer really depends on your baby. Meanwhile, here are some signs that your little one may be ready for baby food:

  • They can sit upright and hold up their head.
  • They are curious, looking at everything around them—especially what you're eating!
  • Opens the mouth when food is offered
  • They lost the tongue thrust reflex that automatically pushes food out of their mouth.
  • Swallows food rather than pushes it back out onto the chin.
  • Brings objects to the mouth.
  • Tries to grasp small objects, such as toys or food.

If your baby does not seem ready to eat yet, that's OK. Remember that there's no need to rush this milestone. In fact, it's typically better to wait than to start early (experts say that you shouldn't start solids before 4 months). Most babies are ready to start solids between 5 and 6 months.

2. What ages our Fragola meals intended for?

Typically feeding solids start’s between 4-6 months, our meal plans are suitable and approved by our team of experts for any babe starting solids. At Fragola our philosophy is “do what you’re comfortable with", all of our meal plans are 100% safe to start as soon as your little one is eating and enjoying solids comfortably, but do what you’re comfortable with! There is no special order to introduce new foods to your babe. All babe’s are different!

3. I am just starting my baby on solid foods. How often should I feed them?

We recommend feeding them as often as you feel comfortable / works with your schedule. If feeding them 3 times a day works for you, go for it! If you can only feed them solids twice in a day in the beginning - That’s okay too!  

4. My baby is just starting to transition to solids. How can I work in introducing solids while I am still breastfeeding/bottle-feeding them?

We find that the best time to give a baby food is about 30-45 minutes before they would normally breastfeed/take a bottle. This way they are hungry, but they're not quite at the point where they are crying because they are so hungry. Try to avoid introducing your baby to foods after they've just breastfed / had a bottle. Since they just ate, they will likely be uninterested in trying solid foods.

5. Which texture is to begin with?

Typically begins from Very Pureed texture of Fragola food items. The Fragola baby food is carefully tuned with pleasant flavors and textures, yet sometimes, if it is needed, might mix with breastmilk, formula or water to make an appropriate consistency that fit for your baby.

6. What is the serving portion? How much does a baby eat?

Start with small amounts of new solid foods — a teaspoon at first and slowly increase to a tablespoon, along with the baby eating more and developing, increase the portion. Avoiding offering breast-milk or bottle until after the solid food experience has wound down.

7. How to feed your baby?

To introduce solid foods in a calm feeding environment where the baby is sitting upright and is appropriately supported and moderately hungry.

To feed the food with a little spoon. Your baby needs to learn to eat from a spoon. Don't use an infant feeder. Only formula and water should go into the bottle.

8. Are the varieties of the food items good for the baby?

Don't limit your baby's food choices to the ones you like. Offering a wide variety of foods early will pave the way for good eating habits later.
