Kelsey makes great points, it really depends on the baby. My SIL started her baby on veggie purees around 4 1/2 months old, which seems early, but if you saw this baby you would know she was ready. She is so attentive watching that food and wanting to grab it herself and explore the taste. She's definitely ready to eat. She's just one of those kids that is ready for that next step. Vivi on the other hand is 3 1/2 months old and I'd be shocked if she was ready for solids before 6 months. She's just really content with her bottle, munching right along, sometimes wanting to hold it, sometimes not, and that's just who she is.

I think educating yourself about guidelines and suggestions is important, but don't be afraid to question anything that doesn't sound right to you. At the end of the day, Sophia is your child, you know her best, do what you feel is best for her. I forget who wrote this, but I think it's a good one, "food under one is just for fun!"
