Starting solids / veg & fruit instead of cereal

Hello, I'd like to hear from moms who started their babies straight on fruit and veg instead of rice cereal, which theory has it is the new way to go. My baby will be 5 months next week.

Also a suggested schedule if anyone has one? Do you do milk, then the food a few hours later?

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

I started my kids (age 4 and 16 months) on gerber 1st foods at about 4 months of age. When they caught onto the idea of rolling the tongue around and not letting their food "dribble out" I went on to table food. My doctor thought it was perfectly ok to do that as long as they showed signs of readiness. I did continue to give them milk after they were down eating.

When my daughter was little I would bf when she woke then about an hour later we do solids. We only did solids once a day before 6 months, and twice a day until a month ago. She's now ten months old and just starting 3 times a day, we never did cereal just fruits and veggies.
