6 months is the recommended age to start solids. start with the single grain cereals, rice, then oats, then barley..., after you have made your way through the cereals try veggies, then fruits. some babies will refuse veggies if the start on the sweeter fruits. try each food for at least 3 days and watch for signs of allergies, if you have a lot of allergies in your family you should try each food for 5 to 7 days before introducing anything new, and also consult your dr. if allergies are a real problem in your family. also, i like to pick one brand of baby food before i start the solids a stick with it.best of luck!

You can start solids between 4-6 months, but isn't really necessary until 6 months. You should definitely be able to start solids!

Yes you can feed her solids. Start with rice cereal see how she does that for three or four days. Then start with veggies and try each food for three days and then start a new one.Then do fruits and you can try juice after she has went through all 1st foods. Apple, pear and white grape are the ones you can try.Good luck it really fun 2 see their reaction 2 new foods.
