  • Mine were 5 months and it was peaches mixed thick with rice cereal. We didn't do stage one, skipped right to stage 2.

  • Never fed stage 1, we started with stage 2 and just gave half a jar.

    First one, I think it was peas.
    Second one, I think it was green beans.
    Third one, it was whatever came first in alphabetical order. (applesauce maybe?)

    They were all right around 5 months...maybe 4 1/2.

  • Her first food was crappy cereal and then I found out it wasn't very healthy so we pulled her off of that. She also ate some carrots, lamb, and peas in a mushy form. After a couple weeks though we just went straight to table food.
