  • She's probably just not ready. My DD was truly not ready for solids until she was 10 months old. The fact that she got her first tooth at 10 months may have had something to do with it. I tried at 6, 8, and 9 months. At 10 months she really did not want baby food but I started making my own and that's when she started eating solids good.

  • Yup, we need more details. :) My little guy is two months old, and our doctor instructed us to start him on rice cereal. Earlier than most, but my kid is pretty big so far is taking it like a champ. We mix our's 4-5 parts breast milk to one part rice, so there's hardly any texture. How are you doing your's?

  • Katie....you pedi recommended cereal for a 2 month old???? I'm shocked. I believe you, I'm just shocked. If you don't mind me asking, is there a medical reason?

  • She's only 4 mos old, she is probably not ready for it, especially if she is refusing it. Put it away for now, and in a couple of months, try introducing some fruits or veggies. JMO

  • My son didn't get cereal til he was 5 months old. If she doesn't want it i would just wait and try again in a month.

    Absolutely not. IMO, and in the opinion of the AAP, she's still too young for it.
