Re: Whats the best age
never put cereal in bottles, ever, and if you have a doctor recommending it I suggest getting a new doctor. Regardless of if you have the doctors okay, I'd hold off on solids, 6 months is the recommended age because before that a baby's premature gut is what's called an 'open gut'. Starting solids too early can not only lead to constipation, allergies, but bleeding in the intestines that you can't see as well. Honestly it'd be the healthiest if you stopped solids, and reintroduced them at 6 months.
I started solids at 7 1/2 mos.
