We did it after rice cereal and veggies. We did cereal at 6 months, veggies about 6.5 months, and turkey about 7 months

Re: When do you start proteins (meat)?

I didn't really ever buy the baby food meats because they grossed me out too much. I started my first on table food meats probably around 7 or 8 months, and even then it was cut up really small. She really liked ground beef and shredded chicken.

Well, dd is vegan but we started her on tofu around 9 months and mashed soybeans at 1 year.

www.wholesomebabyfood.com has some good recommendations for when to start certain types of meat/protein... and then also gives good suggestions of what they can be combined with that kids like...

Good luck!

Meat? Never

DD is vegetarian. I am pretty sure we started smashed beans and tofu around 9 months. By a year she was just eating whatever we ate.

We started solids in general at 10 mo (fruits, veggies and a little meat--what he could eat with few teeth). We held off on grains until he was over a year.

Re: When do you start proteins (meat)?

We've always started between 8 and 9 months. That was about the age they'd be so intent on grabbing from our plates that I'd just give in and let them have it.
