  • I see all the expert mommies of babies are chiming in. Op- no solids until have 2 years of age. No formula, ever. ERF until 16 or when they passed their behind the wheel exam,which ever comes last.. Co-sleeping until marriage (essentially always). Place all kids in a locked bubble for safety purposes.

    Glad I do not live in a world where the trees block those beautiful views of the forest.

  • Me thinks that you are bored and just waiting on a rude anon to reply. that is, if you've been on CM long enough to know how most feel about cereal before 6 months. Good luck.

    As for the answer, I'd start plain if you must give cereal.

  • Blah Blah, 6 months. I started mine on it at 4 months. Not right at 4 months but around it. I did cereal once a day for a week. To get their system used to "solids" then added a meal of veggies. Did the cereal for breakfast and the veggies in the afternoon. Now at 8 months I just added tofu to his babyfood.
