Everything I've read says watch for LO's cues for starting on solid foods. "Every baby is different, you don't have to introduce solids just because baby has reached a certain age."
So what cues did you get from your LO? DD is just now 6 months and we held off b/s we were getting control of her GERD and milk allergy. We've also had difficulties getting her to gain weight b/s of those issues. I have an appointment for 6 month shots and pedi said we'd talk about it then (I originally asked at her 4 month shots), but I'd like to get your input.
