  • She started with cereal at 5 months and wasn't a fan of it (it is very bland) so for breakfast I mixed it with a fruit (usually Banana's) and then for dinner I would mix it with a veggie (she LOVES carrots!).

    At 6 months i started just giving her a "dinner" jar (you will see on the baby food where it says if it is a dinner, sometimes they have desserts too).

    And now at 7 1/2 months (even though some moms may think it is too soon) she is on Stage 3 gerber baby food and usually eats one jar and then a bottle, but sometimes she eats 1 1/2 jars.

    I give her 4oz of apple juice (diluted half and half with water) once a day in the afternoons, and we have never had a problem with constipation.

  • 6 months. Wish I had waited longer. It was too early, and DD had really bad constipation problems at first. Please go to www.kellymom.com and look up "delaying solids."

  • We started trying at 4 months, but it took a while before they really ate any of it.

  • 5 months. You can skip cereal. We had real issues with it. I would start on fruit and veggies.
