  • Dr's suggest one year but i've done it as early as 9 months if there was no complication/allergy.

  • I added an oz to her formula. I and kept upping it an oz after no reactions. If there's a reaction.. diarrhea, rash, vomiting.. etc.. STOP! try again in 2-3 months..

  • I did it at 9 months when the pediatrician said it was okay. They were eating all table foods, a varied and balanced diet.
