Re: When do you start 3rd foods?

Hi, I went to my pedi yesterday for a regular 6 month check up and he told me babies at this age have as little as 8 ounces of formula a day to 32 ounces. I know my DS doesn't take a lot of formula a day so I mix it with other things to get him to take it. He's also on the stage 2s and I have a friend who's son is eating 3 stage 3s a day at 6 months. I think it depends on the child. If her pedi said it was ok, then it should be. Some babies are just big eaters. I think my DS would prefer to eat foods then to be stuck drinking a bottle. Besides, have you smelled or tasted formula? It's gross, then the baby is given something like peaches or carrots, can you blame them for not wanting to go back to formula? Shay
