  • Yep, ask your doctor. Any diet change in young babies should be run past the doctor first.

    Yes, some parents started this young. Yes, some waited until 6 months or later. Which is right for you? We have no way to tell. Run it past your doctor. Between the two of you, you know your baby best and have the education and experience to make the best decision for her.

  • my doctor and WIC say that 4 months is fine to start rice cereal. i cant imagine 2 days making a big difference.

  • I wouldn't. But then again, I wouldn't give it ever. So, you can't really go by what I would do.
