(HealthDay News) -- It may seem like a daunting challenge to move baby from breast- or bottle-feeding to solid foods.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers this advice to help ease the transition:
  • Choose foods with textures that are easier for baby to swallow.
  • Start off by feeding baby while sitting on your lap. Then gradually transition to a safe high chair.
  • Make sure baby sits in a well-supported, upright position so baby can easily explore the food.
  • Make sure baby sits up straight and looks straight ahead to reduce choking risk.
  • Speak in a quiet, calm and encouraging voice while baby eats. Avoid overstimulating the infant.
