6-Month-Old Baby (25 Weeks)

By 25 weeks old, your baby may be able to sit up on his own and stay up. Although your little one may not be crawling yet, he is able to get from point A to point B by rolling, shimmying, and a variety of other tricks he has mastered along the way. Most 6-month-old babies have had their first few tastes of pureed fruits, vegetables, and grains. However, it is important to watch for any food intolerance or allergies your baby might have to new foods.

You and Your 25-Week-Old Baby

You and your baby have come a long way together. The first half of his first year is nearly complete, and you have both learned an enormous amount. The second half promises to be equally enriching.
 
With a little help from you, your infant may be able to stand up and stay up for a few minutes, and is ready to eat more and drink less. While breast milk or formula is still the main staple of your little one's diet, your baby's healthcare provider has likely given you the green light to introduce solids to the menu.
