One of the great things about raising babies in the age of technology is the wealth of information available at the touch of a button. From pregnancy to delivery and all of the milestones thereafter, there are apps, websites, and forums galore filled with professional advice and personal experience. And although it can be overwhelming at times to sort through the endless (and sometimes conflicting) data, at times it can be a true god-send. Weaning your baby is no exception to this rule. Luckily, there are plenty of apps to help wean baby that will likely save you lots of unnecessary stress when it comes time to introduce solids.
Weaning shouldn't be an abrupt, terrible process but unfortunately it's what many moms expect. According to Very Well, it should actually be the opposite — gentle, subtle, and over an extended period of time. Similarly, most experts recommend waiting until your baby is at least six months old to introduce any solids, purees or otherwise, according to Baby Center.
These apps will take much of the stress out of deciding which foods to give your baby and knowing when and how to prepare them. Some have allergen information, tips from the pros, and even places to record how your baby is doing. Whether you're introducing solids for the first time, or are a seasoned pro, these apps will simplify weaning and make it more enjoyable for everyone.
