Re: Do I have to start with rice cereal? (kind of a rant, kind of a question)
We waited until a little over 4.5 months. I wanted to wait till at least 6 months, but DD was trying to put MY food in her mouth and I'd have to take it away from her. So I started with rice cereal and a little breast milk. My preference to do it that way. You read different things in different places, it's really up to you Momma, there's no "best way" to do things! But DD LOVES the rice cereal with the breast milk, she feeds herself. Well, she gets 90% down the front of her, but she grabs the spoon, the bowl.. makes for good pictures. So it's not me shoving cereal down her throat. Go with your gut.
