When did you start giving your child solids

My wee girl is 10 weeks old and she is always hungry, we are thinking about giving a wee bit of solids to see if that helps her.

The recommended age in the UK to start solids is 6 months but if they are introduced earlier it shouldn't be earlier than 17 weeks old so going by that your little one is far too young.

What do you mean by her always being hungry? How often does she feed and how much does she drink each time? Babies this young have to eat little and often as their stomachs are so tiny. Are you breast or bottlefeeding?

I started cereal at 4 months also and i started her on solids when she was 4.5 months. My daughter loves squash and sweet potatoes, bananas, and apple blueberry:) good luck!(:
