Start to introduce more texture + exciting tastes with the help of our handy 7 months weaning planner!
From 7 months, you can start to introduce a second meal if your baby is comfortably eating once a day but go at your little one’s pace. Some might be ready for more food earlier or later than this. At this stage, you can also start to introduce more texture, as little ones can learn to push + squish soft lumps against the roof of their mouth with their tongue (so don’t worry if you can’t see any tiny teeth yet).
Depending on your little one’s appetite, between 3–4 ice-cube size food per meal will be just enough, but your little one’s appetite may change day to day! Babies don’t need snacks for nutritional reasons but at this age, using finger food at mealtimes is a great way to help develop hand-eye coordination.
