I am 20 years old with a 4 month old. Two of my friends have 4 to 4 1/2 month old babies as well. They are already spoon feeding their babies with just thick formula. Is it okay to do that since its not pureed foods?

It's not a good idea to give a baby improperly mixed formula. They have directions on how to add the proper amount of water for a reason.

I started mine on cereal around that time, but never mix "thick formula". The directions are there for a reason, like Dove said.

Are you talking about cereal? It's not recommended to start solids till 6 months, but formula shouldn't be fed on a spoon either.
