A question for the baby cereal feeding moms...

I dont want this to turn into a debate post. I have been feeding babies cereal for years in my daycare and with my own children and will continue to do so as long as I and the parents wish so no need to try to convince me otherwise...thank you.

At what age did you start feeding cereal to your baby? The reason why I  ask is that my baby is a little over 3 months old and he is already 15lbs in in 9 month clothing. He sits up well and is chewing like crazy. He is already interested in what we are eating! He is crazy! I will probably wait until he is at least 4 months old though.

About four months, when my doctor said it was okay, but it was really erratic. Im crap at getting into a new rhythm, it takes me weeks, so they would only get it off and on for the first few weeks.

After a year when she can properly digest it.

We started on plain rice cereal when she was four months old. She didn't really favor it so we tried every other day. Now she eats it once a day.
