It is my understanding solids should not b introduced until 6 mos. formula/breast milk is the perfect food for infants ..... It's all they need. Easy to digest, most nutritious :).

Quite assumptive, aren't we? You have no clue who I am, nor who anyone else is on this board, you have no clue what we do for a living, yet you ASSUME that I have no job, and nothing better to do?

I AM NOT THE ONE WHO ESCALATED THIS. I was simply ATTEMPTING to explain to you a couple of things, point out how you may be causing confusion, or incorrect assumptions about YOURSELF, and you're taking me to task.

I'm done. If you truly were looking for advice, you'd not have changed your story many times, nor deleted your responses, and you'd not have taken offense to a suggestion.

Oh for crying out loud! How is trying to EXPLAIN how you're coming across to others being immature?

Good grief.

Enough crap. You can't even be bothered to tell MINIMAL truth, you're backtracking on answers, and basically deleting everything you post anyway, so how can I even BEGIN to believe you?

Answer? I cannot. Don't get pissy with ME because YOU are not coming clean and actually asking the questions you want answered. And quit getting pissy with others because you don't like the answers you are given.

Nice try. Very nice.

Quit trolling. Stick to your friggin story once you make it up...or better yet, try posting at least MINIMAL truth to begin with. You asked a question typical of a first time mom. No worries, you were answered.

Then you started taking offense, talking back, disputing others. Then you say you LIED about your age? No, I doubt you did, at first...but I bet you did just now. A 40 YO would behave in a more mature manner.

Trying to keep people from wondering what you're hiding, my very YOUNG mother...

Ah, but you have shown the true colors of your age group: "Don't tell me what to do, I already know it all, and you bitches know nothing"

Good luck with that, BTW...I wish you luck when you get the same crap from your kids...

Stop deleting your responses to others, Georgie, it only makes you look like you're hiding something.

No one's attacking you. You asked a question, you got the same answer that everyone ELSE who asks the question gets.

I wouldn't feed the 3 month old solids yet. You should speak to your pediatrician. I had to start my daughter on solids before 6 months (I did it at 5 months but only cereal) because the pedestrian told me to, my daughter was underweight and the formula was not helping. Doctor's know best.

Also you do give a 3 month old a bottle on demand.. not of milk but formula. Heck, you should still be up at night feeding the child-a bottle of course...

she called you young and you say its an insult? You said you were young. 6 months is the correct age but in answer to your milk question if you believe your child nurse (who is wrong) she told you at least 5 bottles - which is what you said so why even ask for a second opinion unless you don't believe her- why believe her on one thing and not the other?

Our pediatrician used to give us handouts every checkup that helped with questions like this. I bet your baby doctor's nurse would be happy to help you with this question.

And by the way, your child nurse clearly has no clue. World Health Organisation and AAP recommendations for solid food is 6 months. She should not be advising you otherwise.

You feed your 3 month old a bottle when your three month old is hungry. You do not feed solids. I can't tell you how much formula to feed your child because your child would be different to mine. But you STILL do not feed a 3 month old solids.

And to be quite honest, I don't care if you think I'm rude. I think you are too. So, meh.....

No, I am not a doctor. But if you want the advice of a doctor, take your child to a damn doctor. You came here to ask the advice of other mothers. So that was a bit of a stupid question.

And just for your information......the jar has an age on it because the company that makes it preys on people like you (young, ignorant, thinks their kid must eat jarred food crap when they are 4 months old, convinces you your child will starve without it). The jar does NOT have an age on it because they have the best interests if YOUR child in mind, not even a little bit.

Actually, at 3 months, they should be getting ALL of their nutrients from milk, you should not be giving solids. You received that advice. You are choosing to ignore it.

So if you are certain your child is ok on solids, why did you bother asking advice? Seriously, your 3 month old is not ready for solids, no matter what you think. They need only their formula or breastmilk. It is about brain development......would you want to risk your child's neurological development? If you don't understand the neaurological development of a child, maybe you should look it up.

Also, ANY solid offered under 12 months is striclty for practice, and should not eliminate any breastfeeding or formula feedings.

Babies should not be offered any sort of solid until they can sit up unassisted, have complete head control, showing interest in food, and thrusting reflex is gone. Really, we are trying to help Georgie, not condemn you. It is very exciting to start our babies on solids, but should only be offered when they are ready. All of these things previously mention should happen around 6 months or older. They will not properly digest it, could choke etc. It is not healthy to offer solids so soon. Also, if a jar is labeled for 4 months, it is a marketing ploy. Companies don't care if you are doing the right thing for your baby, they are concerned about making money any way they can.....even if it means marketing for babies to young.

The tin should say how many bottles he should be having. Like I said in my first post, until babies are 12 months, solids are just for taste and texture, NOT nutrition. That's what their formula or breastmilk is for.

We have all had children and just because the jar says 4 months (and your baby is 3 months so still too young) doesn't mean that the doctors agree.
The doctors and child health nurses say a baby shouldn't be given solids until 6 months.
But I guess you know everything and since you do why did you post your question in the first place? You have posted on a public forum and you will get people telling you what the health professionals recommend.
These aren't just opinions, they ARE facts. Maybe you need to do a bit more research.

Solids should not be introduced until a MINIMUM of 6 months. your 3 month old only needs formula or breast milk at this stage

Until they are 12 months they just have solids for taste and texture, not for nutrition. It's also advised that you don't start solids until 6 months, that's usually when the thrusting reflex is gone and they are able to swallow properly.
