Same here. My dr said 6 months. I waited until 7-8 months. He really did start enjoying or wanting solids until a year!

Quoting abra:

I don't start solids until at least 8 months so I'm not sure what is safe that young. I don't think they generally recommend you start until 4-6 months at the earliest.

I waited until 6-7 months and he got what we ate within reason. We never really did "baby food"

A 3 month old should never have solids, maybe a lick here or there. Solids always have LESS calories than bm or formula...also if she cant sit she cant eat solids without choking.

My oldest did yes. And since my youngest is 3 months and a week she has time. I'm not going to force solids on her if i don't think she's ready.

Quoting louzannalady:

Okay. I repeat. You are saying your four month old sits up on her own, without propping, has a pincer grasp and has lost the tongue-thrust reflex? 



Quoting mcr17:

My daughter is 3 1/2 YEARS, not months.her sister is 3 months and is formula fed only. At 4 months i will try solids for her.

Quoting louzannalady:

So, you are saying your 3 1/2 month old sits up on his/her own without propping, has a pincer grasp and has lost the tongue-thrust reflex? That all happens at the time that the baby no longer has an open gut. An open gut means that all bacteria goes directly from the stomach to the blood stream, which can be very dangerous for baby. 



Quoting mcr17:

my daughters pediatrician said 4-6 months. 

every baby IS different. my oldest started solids at 4 months. at age 3 1/2 she is not obese. im gonna try with my youngest at 4 months as well. if she isnt ready till 6 months or older thats fine.

parents know when their kids are ready.

Quoting KylersMom8-16-7:

No a baby's digestive system is not ready until 6+ months period!

Quoting mommy_2_be_2010:

Every baby is different why can't you women understand that????

Quoting NicLof2:


Babies tummy is not ready for solids.

Quoting TiffanyMarie80:

Solids in general are a no-no until at least 6 months

You might not want to think about combinations right away. Simple food. One ingredient per food for a while. Because there are allergies to look out for and your child's tastes to worry about as well. Cereal at first. Then veggies, then try fruit. But I didn't do combinations until after I knew that my son liked the foods that were being combined. And 3 months is a tad early. I would say 4 or 5 months at the earliest. But check with a nutritionist or doctor about that to be on the safe side.

Formula or breast milk to young for anything else.

A 3 month old shouldn't be eating food. It can damage her stomach and intestines. Wait until 6 months.
