First Solids


How old was/is your baby when you plan or have fed them a solid food, even the starter pablum. My daughter was six months and I felt she was ready!

I fed them solids when they were still breastfeeding. There is no set age, but all babies are different.

Cereal around 5 months. Veggies at 6 months and now I am starting fruit at 7 months.

Doctors recommend waiting until 6 months. My youngest showed interest in my food at 4 months but I gave her baby oatmeal at 5 months, she loved it! I think if they can sit up well, swallow fairly proficiently and show interest, give it a try.

4 months

My daughter started cereal at 4 months. I talked to her doctor first to get the go ahead. She was very interested in food.

3, 5 and 6 months

My two daughters started at 5 and 6 months but my son was hungry all the time. He put on too much weight soo doctors told me to start feeding him at a very young age. He was about 3 months old and look like a michelin baby lol

We will see but planning to let him start tasting at 4 months then actually feeding at 6 months which seems like the most common time.

6 months

I started my son on baby cereal when he was 6 months old. When he was 8 months he was eating fries. By the time he was a yr he was eating pretty much everything we did
