Introducing stage 3 foods. I have noticed that Connor likes food with more substance. Not just runny. At what age do you start introducing the Stage 3?

I don't think there's an age--more of a readiness. Troy doesn't like a lot of texture, so he won't do most of the 3's, but a friend of mine whose baby was born 5 weeks after Troy has had him on Stage 3's and some table food for weeks now. I would try them and see how he does.

lol are probably aware... but just incase did you know your ticker says your baby is 3 weeks old? i have noticed it before and each time i do a when i see you on the baby feeding board lol and then i see you are in the jan PR and I go "oh!!!" lol.

Anyway it depends on the brand. I have found that with some brands, the stage 3 jars are the exact same as the stage ones only bigger jars. But with companies like heinz, they have stage one and 2 which are pretty much the same and then suddenly jump to stage 3 which has big chunks of stuff they can choke on. I agree that it depends on the age... but also the brand. If your baby has been allergy tested for most of the stuff in the stage 3 jar, try it out, but if you havent introduced anything chunky yet, take it slow. for example, the stage 3 heinz have full pieces of carrots, chicken, peas, potatoe etc that can easily be choked on. Sorry I am not much help since I dont know which brand you mean, but for most brands, stage 3 just equals bigger jar without a change in consistency that I have noticed, other than heinz.

LOL...well I hope it is just the font, cause I see it says 32 weeks and 3 days old. either that or it isn't working right.

Anyway I use Gerber food. And I have seen that the stage 3 jars do have some chunks in them. I am nust not sure how big and how mushy they are.

Thanks for your feedback ladies.

I was thinking that I would start Dylan on Stage 3's (Gerber) when he got a tooth or teeth lol As of right now we have none so I think Im going to wait until then.
