I started my daughter on solid stage one foods at 3 1/2 months, She is now 9 months and is getting into the stage three's and has "NO" teeth. She is VERY good at gumming it! I also give her bitter biscuits, yogurt puffs and Little puffs. My doctor told me to introduce what ever I wanted but watch for allergic reactions. She even eats dried strawberry,Banana mixes. I was told the more you introduce at a young age the less your child will be allergic to and the less picky your child will be when they grow up! The water is a good thing and I give my daughter a sippy cup at every meal,Doc told me that she gets plenty of water from her foods and 3 8oz bottles she gets a day! yes I would definitely start brushing his teeth, you want him to learn to take care of his teeth early!!
