When did you start introducing your infant to foods other than formula (not a question for BF moms)...eg: cereal, gerber foods, etc... And how did you go about introducing these fodos? How many times a day did you give them, and how much?

No baby should start before 4 months. Even if for some reason you think your baby is ready. A baby's digestive system is not ready before 4 months. There have been many scientific studies about the earliest time to start solids and 4 months is the very earliest. There have also been studies that have shown solids don't make your baby sleep through the night.
Moms that start solids too soon, overfeed their babies, and have overweight babies need to realize that they are harming their babies in ways that may cause the child to have lifelong health problems. Like Aon 10:01 says it is linked to childhood obesity, allergies, and other problems. The obesity can be lifelong. It sucks having multiple foood allergies.

well my kids are just fine thanx! no allergies, healthy weight, and they all slept through the night at an early age. if your child is hungry, feed it! and remember always, mothers had babies before they had doctors! you know what your baby needs better than any scientific study. i swear i dont know how any mother could listen to her child scream in hunger and just stick a bottle in it's mouth! that's just lazy and/or stupid!
