  • According to the Gerber website, your child is ready for Stage 2 foods when she is a "sitter". She should be able to sit independently, pick up and hold small objects in her hands, reach for food or spoon with hands, and clear food off of spoon with her upper lip. If she can do that, then she's ready. Of course, watch her carefully as she gets used to the new texture. :-)
