  • My son started solids at 8 months and 2 days. His first food was sweet potatos. Up until then it was breast milk only. Here is some info about when to start solids:

    6 months is the earliest they should be getting anything but breast milk or formula.

  • My son started solids at 8 months old, it was like he just woke up one morning and had enough with the baby food he completely refused it!

  • I started with pureed veggies and fruits at about 6 months. Mashed potatoes tend to be a bit thicker, so I don't do that until about 9 months.
