Yeah mine says start cereal (rice first then oatmeal, then the mixed cereal and or barley) at 4 months and then starting about 5 months start introducing a veggie a week and then when all veggies have been introduced we could start with fruits.

Our pediatrican says starting solids anywhere between 3 to 6 months is fine. He said we could start whenever I wanted, but there was no hurry. He recommended starting with rice cereal just until they get the whole swallowing thing down, and then to gradually introduce fruits and veggies one at a time.

I was shocked at the appt yesterday when they asked if I was giving his solids......I had no idea you could begin that early.

Terry got on my case about this last night. He thinks I want him to grow up too quickly. I will wait a couple weeks just to keep him happy but I'm bringing up the high chair so he can sit in it while we eat.

My pedi always said I could try cereal at 4 months if they wanted it but if I started at 6 months that was fine too! I always tried with the other girls and they had no interest in it so I probably won't try Hannah til 5 months or so! I am in no rush...and she seems to not have any interest either!
