I just recently started my son on rice cereal about a half a month ago (he's almost 5 months) but I put fruit with it becuase he refuses to eat it other wise. About a week ago I started him on the beg baby foods, I give him rice cereal in the morn with his bottle he eats only 7 ounces, then a bottle for lunch, bottle around 3pm, then around 6pm he gets a half a jar of veggies and a bottle. Then around 8:30 he gets another bottle then he is down for the night until 8am the next morning.

Thats a mothers instinct. Its when you feel its right. I started my kids off probable around 3 months. though I had them eating solid food soon as they had actual teeth. because I don't know about you but I tried every thing my kids eat (all baby food). And that baby food in gross. The only thing that tasted half way good was the fruit. But I had them eating food as soon as possible because it made them sleep easier. But make sure you use the same type of food for a week so you now there is no allergic reaction to it. hope it helped.

well i started giving my daughter baby food at about 5 months and at like 7 months she started eating table food just the soft table foods then when she got teeth she started on stuff she could chew but when i started her on table food she wanted nothing to do with the baby food at all and she was off the bottle at 7 1/2 -8 months i think it was but i still gave her formula b/c the dr told me not to take the formula until she was almost a year (dr.s don't like you to feed them that soon so if you say something to the dr they might tell you to stop)

i started my son wen he was 5 n a half months as he was a hungry baby but for the first 2weeks all he would eat was baby rice wouldnt have anything eles but after the 6 months mark he started eating the proper foods looked asif he dint really enjoy them but that was just all the diffrent new flavors once he got used 2 the taste he was fine but your baby will let u know wen he or she is ready i didnt know if kaiden was ready or not but the fact that i was constantly breastfeeding him lyk every hour or 2 hours i thought i would give it a try all babys are diffrent some start eailer than others and also if your baby is trying to eat his or her fist then thats a sign that they are ready so my mum says lol hope this helps a little xx
