Solids & Finger Foods

Feeding problems may happen when you start your baby on solid food. As novice eaters get the hang of dealing with solids, pushing food out of their mouth with their tongue and even gagging are normal. Whenever you introduce a new food, watch for signs of food allergies, which can happen immediately or even hours later. Anemia is another potential problem, usually caused by a lack of iron in the diet. It can develop at around 6 months, when babies start solids and drink less formula or breast milk.
