Feeding and nutrition

What portion sizes should I give my baby?

We follow NHS Choice’s advice on weaning:

To begin with, how much food your baby takes is less important than getting them used to the idea of eating, as they’ll still be getting most of their nutrition from breast milk or infant formula.

Start by offering just a few pieces or teaspoons of food, once a day.

Babies don’t need three meals a day initially, so you can start by offering foods at times that suit you both and slowly increase the amount and variety your baby eats.
