Who did not get the OK for solids, we were going to wait a bit any way because she is thriving on just BM (not even on the growth chart) but did anyone elses doc give them the thumbs down untill later?

On askdrsears.com there is some great information on why you should wait until 6 months. Your doctor might just agree with those reasons.

Our doctor has been checking the strength of his neck with every appointment. At two months she did the strength check and said that tummy time would help him get ready to eat. It has to do with their neck and strength. I didn't ask her too many questions on this. She might just be coockoo. It might be that your doctor saw something with his strength.

Also it could be that he is gaining the right amount of weight with feedings that you can wait.

I was asking if we should start solids and she said it was fine. But I don't think she thought it was necessary. She also said to watch his cues. If he was pushing the spoon out with his tongue and gagging, then stop and wait. He thinks it is funny, but I don't think he is really ready. It is just wasting food right now.

we got the thumbs down too, here pretty much for the same reasons. He just doesn't need it yet.

We are waiting to start solids, Doc agrees too. He prefers us to wait. Chole is fine and growing just fine on BM so no need to introduce solids yet.

Lucy hasn't even had her 4 month appointment. We see a nurse not a dr, who only ever gives information about solids. Its left 110% up to the parent when to start solids. Lucy seems more than happy just getting formula, and honestly I'm too lazy to start solids yet. She's on a good routine and is growing well and I don't want to mess with it until I don't have a choice.

We haven't had a 4 month appointment yet but from when I had my son I know our Dr prefers that parents wait until 6 months because babies don't really need anything else before then. Starting at 4 months is more of the "old school" recommendation.

Our doc said it was ok to start between 4-6months. Which is great since adding just a little cereal a few times a week makes it easy for him to poo on his own. He's still learning how to eat so he only eats about 6 bites before he's had enough and wants a boob.

I didn't get the green light per say but I have started him on it cause it seems like he needs a little bit more than just me. But they had asked if he was getting it so maybe that is why.

We were told to go ahead with solids but we aren't going to.. much to my mother's dismay.

I want to wait until she is at least 6 months old. To me, starting solids early is pointless and causes more harm than good.
