  • I started at 5 months. They generally say wait until 6 months but it's really whenever your baby is ready and will take to it.

  • If breastfed, no sooner than six months. If formula fed, no sooner than four months.

  • My daughter is 4.5 months. I just started her on Gerber stage 1 food, because even though she drinks plenty, she was still not satisfied and would wake often during the night starving. The food helps her sleep longer through the night. But I never substitute food over her daily milk intake. I still breastfeed just as often and give her a treat of stage 1 food here and there, so she can learn to take food from a spoon.
