  • 4 mos is fine. Start with Veggies bc if u start with Fruits baby will love the sugar and then might not like the veggies. If baby is hungry start giving him food. Lots of doctors say 46 months that is too late. By 6 mos baby should have tried all veggies and fruits and starting stage 2
    Good Luck

  • Thats about when I started giving my daughter them. They say to start with like the fruits and do like one a week or something so they can get used to it and to know if that have any allergic reactions.

  • You're supposed to start with yellow and orange vegetables [squash, carrots] and then to other vegetables [peas, etc] and THEN fruits last. Otherwise baby will get accustomed to sweet things and have bad eating habits. 4 months is fine. I'm starting my son now and hes 4 months.

  • I started cereal with my LO around 2 months, then baby food at 3 months. I would introduce two veggies, then a fruit until I went through all the Stage 1's. My son didn't turn his nose up to the veggies after having fruit, so I don't agree with the past poster. Make sure that when introducing a new food, feed it to them for 4 days and watch out for allergies.

  • thats around when i started. then we moved to stage two pretty quickly because the jars are a little bigger. we just got to stage 3 foods and shes 9 months now.

  • My son had rice cereal in bottles starting at 5 weeks and 2.5 weeks. Their doctors advised me. I started my older son on fruits first, because that is what I was told to do 12 years ago... and then my second son on veggies first. I don't think it matters... whatever. But four months old is when they started.
