Any tips

YES! My baby is 5 months old and I started him on solids about 3 weeks ago. I would suggest only giving your baby one food at a time for at least 5 days before trying another food. And start out with oatmeal baby cereal, it is easier on the stomach than rice. Also make sure to thin any foods out with alot of breastmilk or formula so they dont get constipated like my poor baby did. I made the mistake of giving him mashed bananas (although they were very ripe) without breastmilk one day because I didnt have any extra pumped and I think it gave him trouble. Probably just start out with the more watery fruits like pears or melons..? This is just my opinion and I know everyone has their own advice, but I hope this helps! I sure wish I had known this stuff before I started solids with my little guy. He went 5 days without pooping and when he finally did it was so painful for him and so awful to go through...terrible sleepless nights. On top of the congestion he's been dealing with , this definitely made things much more frustrating for everyone! Best of luck! Let me know how it goes, Veronica.
