No. It is best to wait til 6 months. Some peds will recommend as early as 4 months, but newer research is showing that to have great potential for permanent damage to their digestive system.

No at 3 months baby should only be getting breastmilk or formula. That is where their nutrition is coming from for proper brain development and growth.

No! Keep breastfeeding until six mo then breastfeed while introducing solids.
Then after one and a half years old continue breastfeeding if you want to.

PS I'm still breastfeeding my 4 year old.
