This was touched on in the milestones thread, but I thought a separate place to discuss would be helpful.
Right now we're following the advice of our pediatrician. She said he could start at our 4 month appt, but we waited until 5 months. We're currently at the tail end of her recommended 7-10 days of 1 tsp rice cereal mixed with formula or breast milk. Next we'll move to 7-10 days of 2 tsps rice cereal. She said we could do this all at once or at 2 times in the day. I think I'd rather do twice, but realistically I'm not sure we have time in the morning for that so we might do it all at night for now.
After that is where it becomes fuzzy so I need to talk to her again. She said try green veggies first, same veggie for 2 days then the 3rd day off (for possible allergic reasons). I'm just not sure how much of the green veggie to give. After green veggies she said move to orange, but the 3rd day can be a green veggie from the first round. I'm not sure how long we do this or when we move to fruits.
Has anyone else started solids yet? Nuggets of wisdom from STM+ moms?
