My DD will 5 months in a matter of days and I feed her baby cereal when she was 3 months and baby food when she turned 4 months. I feed her cereal with apple sauce in the morning and veggies for lunch. When do I start to give her baby food for dinner? I feel she is ready now she takes a 4 oz bottle every 2-4 hours. Should I start to feed her baby food a third time in the day?Answer Question

Until they are a year old, babies need the nutrition they get from formula or breast milk. Introducing the new foods is fine (like the previous answer said, one at a time to watch for allergies), but they should still be getting an average of 22-28 ounces of formula or breast milk each day. Check with your doctor to to make sure she's getting enough for her height and weight.
