  • my daughter didnt even start solids til 5 months, THE DOCTORS said to start them at 6, but my mom freaked out when she found out she was 5 months n still not eating solids. so she made me start feeding her, lol. i felt dumb. then she started sleeping more when she started eating. a meal a day at first, then 3 meals a day, n feedings afterwards.
