  • Now that you've started introducing solids, yes. Open field. Wait a couple of days between introducing new things, but you've got pretty much free rein.

  • I started 3 of my children on fruits when the were 4 mths old and when my youngest son turns 4 mths i will also give him fruit. I say if you really want to then go ahead

  • If she is swallowing well, go ahead, but all the things i have read say you should introduce veggies first. And only introduce one thing at a time, for a few days. This is the best way to figure out if your baby has any food allergies or aversions. I did just see baby rice cereal with fruit already mixed in it at target the other day, thats a good option
