Nope he doesnt have to start with stage one. It is just more liqiudy- to get them used to it in transition from thier all milk diet. I bought 2s and added a lil breastmilk for the first week after that I just fed it to her as is.

I don't believe there is a difference other than size. My daughter's doctor told me to skip stage 1 because they are a ripe off and go straight to stage 2. I only give my daughter half a jar a day for now. The other difference I noticed is the price of stage 1 versus stage 2. Stage 1 is cheaper, however my Dollar Tree has Gerber stage 2 jars for 3 for a dollar, which is a steal.

No not really. Stage two is SLIGHTLY less watery than stage 1. You can always add rice cereal to stage two to thicken it. Looking at the ingriedients it says water and ___ on both stage ones and twos. However stage ones are limited with not a lot of variety or combination. So when buying make sure you buy things that come in stage one size for example- Buy- Pees, carrots, applesauce, bananas. DONT BUY- Apple/strawbeery/banana, banana/berry, mixed veggis, meats.
You want to start simple preferably on rice/oatmeal then onto vegis then to fruit. a few days on each new food to make sure there are not negative reactions.
Hope this helps.

I think there is a difference. Baby's tummys can be very sensitive and that's why they suggest to follow certain orders of intrudicing foods. But you could always read the ingreds and vitamin intakes on the bottle or check out their websit.

The only difference I noticed is in the size of the container and the varieties. At our target in town the stages 1 and 2 are the same price, so I've started buying the stage 2 foods that they also make in stage one. I'll start to phase in the new varieties of foods as they get to sitting up and crawling.
