  • It doesn't matter how young you start all kids go through a somewhat of a "picky" stage. Starting foods too early is actually said to increase the chances of food allergies. Just make sure that what you are feeding them doesn't make their stomach upset.

  • My little boys 4 months old... The doctor told me I could start feeding him jarred baby food. The stage one ones. But at 3 months you can feed babys baby cereal in the morning and at night and it'll make them fuller and not drink a lot of formula. And feeding babys cereal it makes them sleep all night long. But you can also blend up like food that we would eat and feed it to a baby as long as its blended like baby food.

  • Starting solid food early doesnt' mean your child will be a good eater!! There are reasons why breasts milk or formula are the best food for infants. Food allegry, and some medical researcher will even tell you early intake of real food increase risk of developing cancer.
