DD was 5m3w and her first real breakfast was scrambled eggs, toast with butter and jam and a sausage patty. She LOVED it and ate a lot of it. Pedi didn't say it was a problem after the fact.
DS was 6m and had meatloaf and sauteed zucchini for dinner then watermelon. Again, my pedi says there's no reason to delay any food beside honey.
I'm also not one of those people who think the pediatrican is God. LOL!
Glad your LO is enjoying the food.
Just read a GREAT article on this: http://www.dinneralovestory.com/this-just-in-babies-eat-food/
Basically, the premise is: Babies eat food! So it details how to start your baby on eating solids/real food without the worry.
JAM828:Wow. This is a really old thread. Lol.
I was just thinking that.
jessicariley810:It is recommended to start at 6 months old. Baby could face some disadvantages later on if you start earlier. You can find here the proper solid food for each age and some specific recommendations for you : http://goodmomming.com/ Hope it helps you!
First of all, stop bumping this post. Lol. It's frickin old.
Second of all, what disadvantages? There are plenty of people that start as early as 4 months. It depends on the baby. If they are ready, they're ready.
