How can I switch my baby to solid foods?

Getting Babies to Eat Solids

If your baby is reluctant to try solid food, and you think he is ready, these ideas might help.
1) Let him watch other people eat, especially other babies.
2) Let him dip his hands in the food and suck on them.
3) Offer the food at his normal feeding time, when he is the hungriest.
4) If you're breastfeeding, have someone else feed him, so he won't be thinking of nursing.
