  • With my 13 year old I started rice cereal at 4 months. With my other 4 it was between 4-6 months and it was cereal for all of them. They were all breastfed and since I'm anemic, the iron intake was an issue for them too.

  • I'm pretty sure I will be the only one answering this way, but I practice virgin gut until a year old. That means nothing but my milk until right before the first birthday (so they already know how to eat and can enjoy the birthday meal.) In doing this, we also avoid the whole baby food stage, and they eat what we eat, as soon as they start eating.

  • Both my DD got rice cereal starting at 2 months. Don't bash me, I think they were ready for it b/c they started wanting to eat more frequently and it seemed to satisfy them. Then by 4 months, they got simple fruits such as applesauce and mashed potatoes. I made my own baby food so it was just so fun to experiment with combinations once they handled one ok, we would move on to the next. I think this gave them the good appetite and not being picky characteristic they have now.
