Re: When did you start solids? Why?
We tried at 7 months, she wanted no part of it.
Tried every week for a month and stopped.
Tried again at 9 months, she still hated it.
She finally took to it a little bit at 10.5 months. Avocado, then sweet potato, then butternut squash, apples, pears, etc.
She NEVER got nasty premade rice cereal. We started her on cereal at 11 months with homemade oatmeal (as per Super Baby Food's super porridge) and also made her other whole grain cereals like barley, millet and brown rice.
