Stage 2 - Around 7 months

Around 7 months old, your baby is now ready for different textures such as thicker, mashed baby food with soft lumps.  They also need a good source of iron to help replenish depleted iron reserves from birth.  This section will help guide you on ways to do this and to get baby used to more variety, flavour and more challenging textures.
