Baby Development at 7 months

At 7 months your baby is much more active and eating solids. The time to start solids is usually around 6 months or if unsure you should consult your pediatrician. The way to tell if your little one is interested in solids is when they try to grab the food you are eating or keep eyeing it. Most pediatricians recommend baby cereal as the first foods. You want to start offering baby a little bit at a time along with breastmilk or formula until they are used to it. After baby has been introduced to solids and is taking it you want to wait a week or so before introducing any new solids. This way you can figure out which foods your baby may be allergic to. In terms of development your baby is probably rolling around a lot, sitting up and being much more active. Some babies also start to learn to crawl or scoot around at this age. Again, every baby is different and development stages vary if you are concerned make sure to seek your pediatrician for guidance. What is most important is that you have a happy and healthy baby.
