When did you start feeding your baby solids? (rice cereal, fruit/veggie purees, etc)

They say to wait until baby is 4 months for formula fed babies, and 6 months for breastfed. When did your baby start?

  • my first child was 6 months, the rest were 8 months. i made most of my own baby food, or i just mashed up what we were having. it was really just for tasting and being a part of the family at that young of an age.

  • Right at 6 months. She ate the cereal mixed with formula for a whole two days before I gave up. Now she eat 1-2 jars a day and she's 8 months old.

  • We skipped son hated it and I didnt see the need for it (he was breastfed) so we started him on solids late in his 5th month.
