Food & nutrition

It’s best for your baby if you breastfeed only (not giving them any solid food) until they’re around 6 months old.

You can continue to breastfeed after your baby has started solid food, until they’re at least 1 year of age or older.

Between 6 weeks and 6 months you may notice some breastfeeding changes:

  • Your baby may feed for a shorter time and less often.

  • Your breasts may feel softer but not so full. This is normal as your breasts and milk supply settle and become more efficient. It doesn’t mean that you have less milk, as long as your baby is sucking and swallowing when on the breast, feeding regularly, and growing well.

  • Your baby may be distracted by voices and noise during feeding and come off the breast to look around. This is normal.
