Hi I weaned my 1st & 2nd from about 3months only really baby rice mainly as they started to wake through the night and then properly from 6months Juice I didnt really give I stuck to water, if u do give juice u should dilute it as well. with my 3rd I didnt give any solids to until she was 6months as she never needed it. I would advise though that when u do start to wean that u give them ur cooking as it can sometimes be hard to get them to eat home cooked dinners if they have become used to eatting packet/jar food. good luck

Talk to your pediatrician. Solids should be started between 4 and 6 months, and you really don't want to give her juice. It's void of any real nutrition and high in calories and sugar. You don't want to start down that road!

Hi, I first gave Georgia baby rice at 3 months because she was always hungry and she loved it and we progressed onto purees at 4 months. At 6 months she was able to eat the same as me i just put her food onto her tray and let her eat, we started with pieces of toast, banana and avocado and loved it as she developed her grip in picking up differerent foods we tried her with everything (nothing mashed). Georgia is now 1 and will eat anything it is worth trying its called child led weaning! Hope this helps!

i started my first son on a spoonful of pablum in his formula when he was just 3 weeks, but he was quite hungry...same with my second who is now 3 months...Kolby my first had baby food at about 4-5 months mostly the deserts at first then the veggies...Depends on how their little belly handles it you will know if they become cranky or gassy
