DS is just over 7 months and we are starting solids this week. We bought a sweet potato and an avocado, and we'll give him about 1 tbsp per day...probably at dinner.
I've received a lot of criticism from other mom friends and from my mom about waiting this long, and about starting with veggies and fruits instead of rice cereal. DS is exclusively breastfed, we co-sleep, and I want him to nurse until he self-weans or until he's approximately 2 years old. BM is his main source of nutrition, and I understand solids to be just for fun and practice now anyway.
So, when did you start solids for your LO, and what foods did you start with? TIA!
