Starting the little guy on Stage 1 baby food today.

Any advice?

Doctor said to start with yellow foods, and I read to wait 3 days after introducing something new before introducing another new thing. That's about all I know!

  • I never listened to my pediatrician as to what food to do first. I actually never asked if I could start solids. My kids first foods are usually homemade mashed potatoes. Then I usually go by the things I would eat while nursing and I read my babies cues. And you are supposed to wait a minimum of 3 days before introducing new foods. I was always told a week. I never listened to that either.

  • I started mine with whatever. I didn't wait three days to introduce a new one either. They ate fine.

  • They say to wait atleast 3 days to a week in case signs of allergies occur. It's a lot easier to pin down the problem if complications occur.
