Anyone else thinking about starting cereals and solids around the four month mark?
I was dead set on exclusively breastfeeding until 6 months. But today LO had his four month check up and my doctor said he should start a small amount of cereal at bed time for a few weeks, then start introducing veggies and then fruits. And by 6 months he should be having cereal in the morning and then fruits & veggies at lunch and dinnertime, in addition to the breastmilk. I specifically asked about waiting until he's 6 months for food and he said no, that I should start solids now. So now I'm sure what I should do. LO is a bit underweight at 14 lbs 14 ounces at 19 weeks, I guess that is the 36% percentile. So, that's kind of making me think maybe i should go ahead and start solids. Any thoughts?
