When do you start Stage 2 foods? After you've completed all of stage 1? And when you do start them, do you have to introduce them all like you did stage one, or just the new foods, like the chicken and whatevers?

Thanks.

Xander is already eating the stage 2 single ingredient ones, the only difference between those and the 1st stage is the texture..they are a little thicker/chunkier. I wouldnt try the mixed kinds unless they have been tried on all the ingredients seperatley. Like if it is carrots & peas, make sure they have tried them both seperately first. I would introduce them one at a time for things like the chicken noodle and mac and cheese.

"Stage 1" and "Stage 2" is just a marketing gimmick. Serioualy. Introduce foods one at a time so you can watch for allergic reactions, that's really the only thing that matters. Commercial baby food is a waste of money, unless you are traveling or something and need the convenience. It's easy to mash a banana or a ripe peach or cooked peas with a fork and feed it to your baby - and probably more nutritious because it hasn't been processed.

Yeah, all the jarred baby food is is whatever fruit or veggie it is and water. It's just more convenient for me to grab a jar and open it..hehe.

That's what the jarred foods are: convenience. But they aren't even THAT if you feed your baby when the family eats and can just mash up table foods and give them to your baby. I did the whole baby food thing with my first, but after that I never bothered unless we were going to be "on the road" and might need something for the little one. I really saved a lot of money that way - and realized I'd rather spend the money on cute outfits for the baby or something for ME

Ok here is how to tell how they are ready.. When a baby starts to show lack of interest in the food he is eating.. Like rolling it around in his mouth or push it back out.. He is probably ready for stage 2... I asked my WIC nurse this when I switched Braxton... She also said not to start meats until a baby is at least 8 months...
