When did you start your baby on baby food?

I am just curious how old was your baby when you started giving them solids?

  • I offered purees around 10 months but she wasn't interested. She was exclusively breastfed and started finger foods about a month later. We never did "baby" food.

  • My pediatrician told us to start him around 4 1/2 - 5 months. We just started him on rice cereal, and have gradually mixed different veggies in one we established that he wasn't allergic. Only once a day (sometimes every other day) though. At this age, food shouldn't replace breast milk/formula. They say if you start too early or wait too long, baby has a higher chance of developing food allergies.

  • No baby food here. Gave an apple at 6 months, it wasn't really eaten. 7 1/2 months she had developed tongue control. We do babyled solids particularly the gil rapely article.

  • My pedi started him on food at 4 months. I will wait until 6 months next time and skip the jar food and fork mash fruits and veggies for the baby :)
