I wanted to wait until 6 months but she started stealing food off my plate and feeding it to herself at 5 months ... So okay.

We ended up starting a few days shy of six months, but that's what I voted, as she was almost there...

I also wanted to wait until 6 months but DS was failure to thrive and we were trying anything to get him to gain weight. We almost made it to 6 months though - just a couple weeks shy.

Re: When did you start solids?

Mine were gaping their mouths wide open following my food as I ate, so we experimented and there was no going back. Surprisingly at 4 1/2 month-5 months. But my babies were big babies by that age.

We tried to start at 6.5 months, but she didn't really show an interest until 7-8 months.
