Answer: hello.. dear..start with tiny steps.. The best time to start solids is only after 6 months . Yes in some places people start around 4 months but the enzymes are not completely build at that stage that help the food to digest.

A strong head to neck control helps the baby to accept solids well and can easily swallow. Always start with single food first whether it's cereal, vegetables, or fruits. Wait for next 3 days for introducing next food to check for any allergy. Few tips of feeding the food,
