Here are three signs that your Bulilit is ready for their first solid food experience:

  1. They’re around 6 months old

Doctors often advise moms to start solid food feeding around their baby’s 6th month. It’s because, at this age, Bulilits need more nutrients to support their physical growth and development. At 6 months old, they are also more active—already rolling over, even crawling and can sit with support. Moms also notice that they move their mouth and tongue, like wanting to taste the food that the family is eating. This physical activity demands more energy coming from solid food sources.

  1. They can swallow food

You’ll know that your Bulilit is ready for solid food when they start outgrowing their tongue-thrust reflex, which is an instinct that keeps them safe from choking. This means that if your child is not yet ready, they will instinctively push out food from their mouth with their tongue. You can test if the reflex is gone by giving them small amounts of baby food. If you see that they are chewing and swallowing, get excited! It means that you can start solid food feeding!
