How old were your babies when you first started giving them rice cereal? Stage 1? My mother in law scolds me bc i started giving my 3 month old son rice cereal bc by all the books and his doctor he's ready and HE LOVES IT!!!!! He's just shy of 4 months now and she still freaks out about it, but he does great swallows well and gets all happy and giggly when its dinner time. She freaked out on me the other day for even mentioning starting stage 1 foods. So am I wrong for giving it to him or should I just ignore her?Answer Question
