  • sometime around 9 months i think....i dont really remember. I know i went through all of the stage ones one at a time and after we had all of those done and he was inhaling them like he was going to starve to death we went up to stage 2.

  • At 4-5 months when we started first giving baby food. The only difference between them and stage 1 is the size of the jar and the availability of combos. Just do one ingredient at a time.

    After running through all the single ingredients we went through the combos and at 6 months started offering finger and table foods.

  • When the stage 1 started not being enough. Like a PP said, the only difference between1 and 2 is the size and the combo variety, so once you've tried all the stage 1 foods and there are no problems and your baby's eating enough to make opening a stage 2 jar worthwhile, go ahead and try it out. Just be sure to still only offer one new food at a time (so if you want to try apples and blueberries, be sure you've tried one or the other by itself already)
