I want to see some BFing mommies advice here. I've had 3 babies in less than 3.5 years and they were all BF, but the advice to this question keeps changing. When I had my first, the pediatrician told me to start rice cereal at 4 months. When I had my second he said new research says to start rice cereal at 5.5 months. Now with this 3rd he threw his hands in the air and said I know about feeding babies than he does.
What's your advice on when to start solids? I know some of you don't like rice cereal at all.

The advice for starting solids hasn't changed in 30 years! LLL has always recommended starting around 6 months with banana or sweet potato and that babies never need baby cereal or jar food. Doctors have no training in nutrition or breastfeeding and aren't the people to ask.
http://www.kellymom.com/ is a great breastfeeding website that has info on starting solids.
The thing that has changed is that you don't have to wait a week between foods and after 6 months if there isn't allergies in your family you can feed the baby almost all food except milk (cow, goat, or any mammal).
The World Health Org recommends waiting 3 years after having a baby before ttc.
