My baby keeps stealing my lunch. Does this mean she's ready to wean?


Not necessarily! By six months, your little one is probably grabbing at anything and everything and putting it straight to their mouth. This applies as much to the car keys as it does to mum’s lunch.

Just because baby has made a grab for your jacket potato does not mean she is hungry for it - don’t mistake a baby’s natural curiosity and developing motor skills for interest in food!

Have a look at the sure signs that baby is ready for solid foods, and remember not to rush it!
