How old was your little one when you introduced ceral? I did notice that they changed the age limit on giving a baby ceral. I just want some opinions.

We are not going to do cereal. Our pedi said it was not really needed. At 6 months we are going to try mushy foods. I have a baby bullet to make our own baby food.

My youngest is 10.5 months and we skipped cereal since it's nasty stuff and pointless. I learned with my younger two, but I introduced it at 5 months with  my oldest and 9 months with my second.

My son will be 6 months in just under 2 weeks. I plan to skip cereal (there's no real need for it) and start on pureed fruits and veggies (starting with avocado, sweet potato, and banana) when he hits 6 months (although if it seems like he's not ready, I'll stop and try again the next week).

We didnt do baby cereal.

Around a year old, we introduced normal and healthy breakfast cereals such as weetbix and porridge.

You need a "never" option!

We started putting cereal in his bottle around 6 weeks and he ate cereal with a spoon at 3 months.

We skipped it. He wasn't into it but dove right into food. He's a piggly.

I'm a firm believer in NO solids until around 6 months

You don't have an option for "never".
