  • im a pediatric nurse.. and NOO do not give her baby food now there is no need once o ever plus giving it to early can cause allergies and lots of stomach problems cause their little bodies cannot tolerate it yet. nothing other then formula till 4/5 months old then cereal and then solids at 6 months

  • No, wait until she is 4 months. Her belly is not ready for it yet.
