  • most babies aren't ready for it until at least 4 months, and a lot of moms wait until 6 months. some babies' digestive systems just aren't ready at 2 months.

  • I would wait until at least 5 months, but you should talk to your pediatrician. He/she is the one that knows the specific requirements for your child's health.

  • no, babies digestive systems are not ready for foods other then breastmilk until 6 months. (formula is okay)
    Research has shown an increase in allergies with an introduction to baby foods before 4 - 6 months.
