  • People kill me with this 6 month stuff. I say its when you are ready and the baby is ready. I started my daughter on baby food at 4 months because she was hungry all the time and not getting full. She wouldnt eat little at a time. She couldnt really eat a whole jar until about 6 months but I gave it to her and the pedi had no problems. Dont starve the baby if they are hungry.

  • 6 months. Some doctors tell you you can at 4, but the AAP and the WHO recommends 6 months of exclusive breastfeeding and introduction of complimentary foods at 6 months.

  • I started at 4 with cereal and 5 months with stage 1 babyfood. I never breastfed and the doctor will tell you to start foods about 4 months are so. You may not be breastfeeding or if you are it's perfectly ok to start before 6 months. Talk to your pedi
