Soft baby food

When should I start feeding my daughter rice cereal and mush baby food? If I'm breastfeeding and formula supplementing do I have to give her mush or can I hold off until she can eat solids?

  • Skip the rice cereal. Veggies, then fruits, starting around 6 months.

  • You can start with rice cereal at 4 mo. then move on and add new things. Never add anything new but once a week.... This way if the baby has an allergy you can tell what food to avoid. Good luck!!!!
