Stage 2 baby food

My daughter is turned 6 months old on Febuary 4th and I started her on stage 1 baby food. When do you generally start stage 2? I'm not in a big hurry but I'm not really sure what the difference is? Any advice??

  • There really isn't a difference. Bigger jars and some new flavors... the texture is about the same.

  • We started with stage 2 jars. It was more cost effective. Just give single ingredients as trials and give 1/2 jar at a time. Much cheaper than buying 2 jars of stage 1.

    Other than the size of the jar...there isn't much difference at all...

  • I agree with the two above answers. I never did figure out any difference either.

  • We never noticed a difference either. Just they stage 1 are all a single ingredient. Just Pears- not pear pineapple or whatever. So I gave them to her when I was introducing the foods to make sure she didn't have a reaction. Once she tried everything- I went right to stage 2. Plus- by then- she was ready to eat the bigger containers also!

  • I started stage two after my son had all the stage ones. He was about 8 months old.
