DD#1 was 7 months. DD#2 was 4 months. DD#1 didn't even crawl until 8 1/2 months but was walking by 11 months. It's seriously nothing to worry about.

When DD#1 was a baby, the recommendation was rice cereal at 5 months and baby food at 6, but now it's both at 6. I gave DD#1 both at 5 months and DD#2 (who is quite a large baby - 5 months wearing 6-9m clothes) rice cereal at 4 months and I make my own baby food now at 5 months.

The recommendation is only 1 new food every week, to test for allergies, but I do it more like every 3-4 days, because I figure if she was allergic we would have known by then. I also only give her one bowl of babyfood in a day, and I like to give her formula only every 2-3 days. And her baby food is mixed in rice cereal with formula. But that's just me.

I just realized how that can be misconstrued. Every 2-3 days I have "formula only" days lol to give her tummy a rest. I don't only give her formula every second or third day lol.

Quoting Night_Roane: DD#1 was 7 months. DD#2 was 4 months. DD#1 didn't even crawl until 8 1/2 months but was walking by 11 months. It's seriously nothing to worry about.

Dd was 7 months when she sat up unassisted.

 DD was 4months when she sat up on her own. I started with babyfood mixed with oatmeal/wheat/barley cereal then.

DS was 6.5months when he sat up. I started with babyfood at 7months.

Everyone now recommends waiting until at least 6 months old to start any solids when their bodies are able to handle it. My oldest starting sitting up closer to 9 months as did my second child. My youngest was starting to sit up by 4.5-5 months. Every kid is different. Average age is 6-8 months with 8 being on the later end.

Mine were around 6 months I believe for sitting up.
For the different foods, they were also 6 months. They say not to start new foods until they can sit unassisted.

My daughter was about 6 months I believe when she was able to sit up unassisted. She started standing for short periods of time at around 7.5 months. 

We started letting her taste fruits, cereals, and light things around 3.5-4 months. We never gave her "full meals" of solid foods however until about 5 months.

Don't give solids until baby can sit up. For the love of all thats good, don't give solids unless baby is fully sitting up.
