My son is just over 3months 1week now and he seems to be wanting to eat alot more often. I am aware that the textbook age for introducing other foods is 6months. But every baby is different. I am just curious as to whether it would be safe now to slowly start introducing rice cereal? We have introduced some flavors, just a taste of something on the end of a soother and such, and he seems to enjoy it. He loves sitting on my lap whenever I am eating and he has lost that push-out reflex babies have when something new is stuck in their mouth. How young is/was your baby when you started introducing new foods? Thoughts? Opinions?
