When did you start feeding your baby stuff besides formula?

I know someone who introduced like apple juice really slowly at two months of age... Just curious how different everyone is?? :)

  • I didn't do anything until 6 months besides breast milk. I have heard conflicting info on whether it's ok to start at 4 or 6 months but my baby was happy as a clam with breast milk up until that point, so I saw no need to rush anything and I don't have any regrets.

  • I didn't do juice at all until after 12 months, but I introduced some fresh fruits and veggies around 5-6 months.

  • I started rice cereal at 5 1/2 months and jar foods at 6 months. No juice until about 11 months. Babies digestive system aren't strong enough to handle the food until around 6 months. The only way someone should feed food before 5-6 months is if doctor recommends it.

  • At 5 months we started rice cereal on a spoon not in bottle! 6 months introduced the veggies then the fruits. I held off on juice until 10 months..just gave water. I did this as my daughter who is 5yrs old drinks juice all day and will not drink son actually loves water over juice!
