  • My daughter is 10 months old now. I started her on stage 1 at about 4 months. Try one food at a time, 3-4 times then go to the next food. They learn to like it better and can digest it easier that way. I started her on stage 2 at 6 months and she is on table food along with stage 3 foods now. I thing as soon as your child gets teeth, they should be able to use them.

  • Your ped will advise 4-6m. I think it's best delayed to 9m or even a year.. Especially for a breastfed baby. I wouldn't even consider it before 6m though.
