  • Know that you NEVER have to do rice cereal...it offers nothing but blandness.

    If baby is breastfed, SIX months for solids. And you can start with mashed banana if you'd like. Four months is for formula babies.

  • WELL IT DEPENDS ON THE CHILD REALLY. MY GIRLS STARTED AT 6 MONTHS N I WAS TAUGHT TO PUT SOME IN A BOTTLE BUT THE DOCTORS SAYS THAT'S FORCE FEEDIN BUT IT WORKED WITH MINE FINE. IN DAYCARES THEY WON'T TAKE THE RICE CRERALS IN BOTTLES THOUGH. SOMETIMES I WOULD MIXES IT WITH THE BABY FOOD TO STRETCH IT CUZ BABY FOOD ADDS UP.
