  • Just mix straight veggies, one at a time, steamed VERY soft with breastmilk or formula. Once they've had single veggies you can mix like peas and carrots or other combos.
    I'm assuming you don't mean that you're weaning your baby, just that you're starting solids? - they still need breastmilk or formula until they are at least a year old. A lot of people wait until 6 months to start solids also, ask your ped for their advice.

  • 4 months is too young to start. Wait a couple months and check out super baby food, or www.wholesomebabyfood.com.

  • If you are weaning from the breast you have to use formula. You can start a little food soon, but most of their nutrition will come from the breast/formula still.

  • At 4 months old the only "baby food" besides breastmilk or formula that you can consider introducing is the cereal, such as the baby rice cereal, made very loose with the breastmilk or formula. You shouldn't introduce other foods like jarred or homemade fruit or veggie purees until 6 months at the earliest!!!

  • Breastmilk.
    Solids fed to babies before they turn 1 are for the experience of eating them, not for nutrition (a subject most doctors know little about).Nutritionists recommend starting solids at 6 months; many now recommend skipping cereal and starting with a bit of avocado mashed with breastmilk (or formula). Then baked sweet potato, oatmeal, pumpkin, pureed peas, etc. Jarred baby food tastes awful, is expensive, and you never really know what is in it. Be sure to avoid the allergy trigger foods. This is not a complete list: before age 1, no soy, dairy, wheat, citrus, egg white, strawberries; before age 2 no honey, chocolate, nuts.
    Two great books /websites on feeding babies, with differing philosophies, Baby Led Weaning www.babyledweaning.com and Super Baby Food www.superbabyfood.com You should be able to find them at your local library
