Fruity custard

Between 6 and 9 months your baby will start to sit by herself and be able to learn to hold a spoon. Once she can sit nicely she can be put in a high chair. From 8 months you can offer a wider variety of fruit and vegetables and you can start to give her wheat-based foods like bread and pasta, as well as cows milk in food (not to drink).
