I am looking at what my little one should be eating for her first food... She is 4.5 months, and today she started sticking her hands in my food and trying to stick it in her mouth (she actually got a tiny bit of raspberry and banana smoothie). I am thinking this means she is interested in starting food with her breast milk soon. Will starting her soon decrease my chance of keeping her BF the first year? My original plan was to wait until she is 6 months. Should I use rice cereal? I am nervous because a couple people in my husbands family have had allergic reactions to the cereal.
