Well... The best food for a 3 month old is none. Milk is all they need! Sounds like that ped needs to get a refresher course on infant nutrition.

I was "just fine" with early solids as well..til early adulthood and my autoimmune diagnoses started. What's my only risk factor? That I was fed solids very early. It completely sucks that's have to live with this stuff forever just because my parents found an infant acting like an infant to be an issue :-(
That's the problem with "fine", most of the issues don't show up until years later.

I breast fed and started my son on solids at three months he wanted to eat booby milk every hour! I started oatmeal first along with peas my son is just fine and he is 16 months now. Try peas! My son still loves them! My dr told me the same thing if you need any more advice pm me I made my sons baby food too

It's very normal for a breastfed baby to want to eat every hour, it dosn't mean they need solids.  It just means that your breastmilk is so perfect that it digests easily and quickly and that you should nurse often.

I started mine on bananas and cereal at 3 months. Doc and nutritionist said i could. She was eating almost 60 oz a day of formula that had rice cereal that was made in it. Oh yeah and carrots

The dr told me it was fine and my Brest feeding consoler said the same. She said that I must not be making the nutrition that he needed he was very small and not gaining weight very well.

Wholesomebabyfood.com is a great resource for making food, but i dont think babies can process foods at three mos old. Only formula or breast milk

 I have 3 children 5 and under. Things have changed since my first two and they now say wait until 6 months to start solids. They also say to leave them rear facing until 2. My dd is a larger baby. She was 9lbs 8.8 ozs at birth. She was 17lbs 7 ozs at 4 months and 19lbs 9 ozs at 6 months. She was fed breastmilk until 6 months and then only got them like 1-2 twice a week. She will be 12 months next and eats 2-3 times a day. but mostly still gets breast milk.

Sorry that's ridiculous! My son has been in the 95-98% since birth and is my biggest baby of all three.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends NO solids until 6 months. Before 6 months a baby can't properly digest anything but breastmilk and barely digests formula. A baby size also doesn't matter when physical development of the digestive system is immature. You're potentially putting baby at risk for serious digestive upset(gas, diarrhea, constipation) and food allergies.

I bet babies growth was just fine(maybe slow but within normal range.) Sad...

Well for starters, she's a large baby and is never fully satisfied after eating. Her pediatrician even put her on special formula to fill her quicker. Her pediatrician said she could have solids. Just as long as I'm sure to get the appropriate consistency and texture.
