How old was your baby when you started baby food?

What was the first thing you started them on?

Sweet potatoes,corn casserol (rice flour added to it which is why its a casserole) peas and just started carrots today. Were lagging a bit behind on veggies because she hated jarred stuff at first so i made her sweet potatoes and i made A LOT..but didnt know how to make anything else lol.

I have had to add rice to Jonathan's bottles since he was 3 weeks old. He has reflux. I took him to the doctor when he was 3 months old for an ear infection. The doctor we saw was the ped. who treated me when I was younger. He asked how much formula Jonathan was drinking. I said approx. 35 ounces per day with rice. He told me fed that child. I told him I was giving him formula as often as he was hungry. He laughed and said no, fed that child baby food. After a long discussion over the new guidelines of waiting until 6 months, he told me to start Jonathan on sweet pots 3x day. He said the new guidelines weren't for all babys. He said anytime a child drinks more than 30 ounces of formula in a 24 hour period, then you should start solids.

I'm sorry this was so long, but I hope it helps. Good Luck!!!

my doc said if my son at more than 40 ounces a day to start solids, otherwise to wait till he was 6 months. Cohen was eating more than 30 ounces a day when he was like a month old(4 ounces every 3 hours). So we started cereal at 5 months and one week just because I wanted to be able to take my time with the cereals, and then when he was 6 months we started veggies, once we made it through all the stage one veggies he started fruit. We are waiting till 8 months for meats but that is pretty soon.

Thank you Rawisner for the Siggy!

I started at 4 months, and gave him cereal and carrots. He really needed to gain weight, he was so underweight. I even started before that and mixed cereal into his bottle for about 2 months prior. He was born at 9 lbs. 12 oz. and at 4 months was only 11 lbs. It was scary! But he is okay now and is a huge 17 lbs! Crazy!
