  • I started solids with all my kids early, but just be careful and offer 1 food per week in case your child has an allergic reaction it will be easier to pinpoint what they are allergic to.

  • i just started my almost 5 month old on cereal yesterday. we're going to work our way up to different fruits and veggies after he masters cereal mixed with momma's milk. he's been showing an interest in solids for a while now. if he thinks he's ready, i think it's worth a try. he liked it, but i won't force it on him if he refuses.

  • My daughter is just shy of five months and we just started her on rice cereal. After a month or so we'll introduce veggies and fruits. Good luck with your little one!

  • well, thx everyone for such valuable feedbacks :) but I am just confused as the doctors say u should wait till he's 6 months old while my mom and many other moms say it will be hard then to get him adapted to solid foods, that his appetite will be affected and he'll refuse them..I am more comfortable as to wait fearing allergy and witing for maturation of his digestive system

  • I personally would wait until 6 months and start with fork mashed foods like avocado, banana etc. I started my son on baby food at 4 months per my pedi and would like to do it the other way with my next.
