dr's recommend 6 months before solids, but i have a list of milestones he should hit before we give him food as well. he has hit all of the milestones (tongue thrust gone, less drooling which means the swallowing mechanisms are developed, sitting up unassisted, SO interested in foods etc.). i have seen so many of you start solids, and i am so anxious to start too! i hate these "magic ages" for starting things. which are you going with milestones, or 6 months?
we gave him a green been at dinner to suck on because he grabbed it off my plate and he loved it, i would love to continue introducing. but i am also a preacher for the 6 month rule.. so torn
