  • Most of the resources say that breastfed babies can wait until 6 months before they eat anything. I started my bf baby at a little over 5 months. If your baby can hold head up, sit unsupported, and is interested in food and unsatisfied with just breast milk, you can give her some cereal. Mix it with breast milk, your little one will love it!
