We originally wanted to wait until 6 months, but she was showing all the signs of being ready. She's hitting her other milestones early and I figure it's not like her body looks at the calendar at 6 months and then decides it can handle solids all of a sudden. I'm glad we started because she looooves her food! Has yet to spit anything out! She tolerates all kinds of textures so we don't usually make baby food. The first food she had was technically oatmeal but she only had a bite, after that we tried banana (which she loves). Her favorites seem to be bananas, peas, cheese and whole wheat pasta.
I'm a bit nervous about the BLW too. Two of my friends did it with their babies and swear that it will be fine but I am still nervous about her choking. I just ordered Gill Rapley's book and hopefully that will help me make a more confident decision.
