  • Mine won't start until she is 6 months

  • 6 months but only a very little. It took him 3-4 weeks to really get adjusted to it. I put a lot of breast milk in it at first and then just slowly started making it a little thicker.

  • Didn't. Cereal is pretty icky stuff. We started at six months with mashed banana, went to avocado, potato, peas, green beans. No mixing with anything needed. Mash and serve, couldn't be easier.

    Never had food problems with him till preschool, when someone told him veggies were icky.

  • I'm with MamaJen. We didn't do cereal. No nutritional value, no benefits. I started avocados and bananas at about 7-8 months. He did have some Kix the other morning though =)

  • 7.5 months. After some other stuff, and it was homemade.

  • Never. He started playing with solids at 6 months, when he met the age limit and ALL the milestones...he had banana or avocado...can't remember which.

  • Baby cereal? He never had it. And he started dabbling with solids around 10 months or so, but over the last 4 months has really just decided he wanted to eat more. He will be 2 in November. He isn't starving or anything, just so people don't think that. He is over 30lbs right now and is heavier than his 3 1/2 year old cousin that eats everything. Lol.
