At what age did you dc start solid foods?

I'm just curious. My first ds was about 5.5 months, my second ds wasn't even 5 months (he was/is a chow hound, lol). Now with dd being alittle over 5 months I'm thinking about it, but don't want to deal w/the poop.

Luke is 7 months 1 wk and we haven't yet.

Our first two we did around 6 months. Abby we did around 8.5. I think babyfood is nasty and can give kids texture issues (my older two are pickier). So we now wait until the baby can finger feed small pieces of soft foods. Abby started with small chunks of cooked carrots.

With Mason (ds #1) we started solids at about 6 months. With Camden (ds #2) he was a little over 1. (He had a lot of health problems that related to that decision...)

4m with rice cereal. The Peds were on my for MONTHS to start it because DS had horrid horrid reflux, but I held out until then. It did help him a lot though, so I'm glad I gave in. Then he got bananas at 5m, sweet potatoes at 6m, and has had squash, carrots, and peas this month.

He also sucks on cucumbers, watermelon, crackers, things we eat ya know.

I just started giving DD cereal a week shy of 4 wks. After I quit BFing, she started downing formula like it was going out of style - 40-48oz per day.
