Re: Starting solids

Breastmilk is far more nutritious than any solids you can give your baby. I used to start my dc on solids right at 4 months just because that is what I thought I was supposed to do. Now I know that bm is all they need for at least the first 8 months, or until they get teeth. Giving solids before they are ready can wreak havoc on their digestive systems. Relax, mama!


Psalm 37:5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

Re: Starting solids

I agree with the pp's.
My DD snarfed down cereal the very first time she had it (rice cereal). Then she hated it and would gag. There was no difference in how it was prepared. I tried a few other foods and she would have nothing to do with them. This was at 6.5 months. I waited a month and tried her on beef. She liked it.
She is now 8 months and has had chicken, beef and turkey from a jar. Green beans, carrots, sweet potatoes, and asparagus that I pureed. She tried avocado yesterday and hated it.
Don't worry about using cereal as the first food. Don't forget, red meat is high in iron.
