So yesterday at LO's 4 month appointment Friday and her pedi suggested we start rice or oatmeal cereal and then move to veggies and then to fruits. I told him I didn't want to do cereals and he was supportive. He told me that the American pediatric association now recommends waiting until 6 months but he likes to start earlier. He was very honest by saying that his opinion differs greatly from what is accepted as well as his other docs in the practice and I respect that. When I was at babies r us today I picked up some plum organically pouches just because they are one ingredient pures. I am thinking of starting around 5 months or so. I'm just looking for input on thoughts. My DH wants to live by whatever the doc says. I think 5 months is a good compromise between me and dh. Our pedis view is that he likes to start early to get them used to texture earlier. I welcome all opinions on your thoughts on this... I think it's interesting to see everyone's thoughts since some of you will be starting soon and some will be waiting much longer.
