My baby is 2 months old and i am a first time mom and i was wondering when i should start feeding her baby food. I am also breastfeeding and working full time. Your answers will help me a lot. Thank You.Answer Question
It is recommended to wait untill at least six months of age to give a baby's gut a chance to mature (if you don't you can cause constipation and terrible gas), and the baby should be able to sit UP unassassisted and have lost the tongue thrust reflex (it is a reflex designed to keep solid foods out of the mouth...its a choking preventative), and baby should also show interest in food.

I believe that a full time breastfed baby is fine only NOTHING but BM for 6-7 months.I started my DD on cereal mixed with BM when she almost 7 months.
But do what you feel is best for your baby, some mom's are "forced" my their mom or grandma into giving cereal way to earlier.You know that BM is very easy to pass,so BM babies eat more then baby forced to eat solids to young.There will be a lot of people who will not support my belief's but there are also a lot who do.My DD "sickness" paperwork was only a half a sheet long and at 10 it is still very short.Not the same w/ my son
