Are you formula or breastfeeding? What did you start with? Why did you decide to start when you did?

My daughter at 9 months and my son at 11 months... I BF both!  Both I THINK started with cheerios... or avocado!  I started my daughter then because I thought (stupidly) that she needed it... not true!  My son, I began forcing the issue a bit at 11 months because I wanted him to be able to eat his bday cake a month later and he hadn't eaten any solids yet.

My DD is BF (still at 23 months).  We started solids at 7 1/2 months. We skipped cereal and pureed food and went straight to finger foods. We choose this because it is a more biologically natural way of introducing foods.

I started all three kids at 4 months on rice cereal. I was formula feeding all three of them at that point. They were needing lots of formula so I slowly started cereal once a day for the first week or so, then after a week weeks went to twice aday and then introduced veggies and fruit

Both DD (9 yrs old) and DS (1 yr old) were/are breastfed...

DD was on solids from 4 1/2 mths old...

but since have educated myself so DS started at 7 mths old doing mostly baby led weaning

Both started with banana
