Message length 300 characters recommended

I stated all my babies at 4 months on a small amount of rice cereal mixed with formula (breast milk if you are breastfeeding) I didn't start fruits or veggies until they were about 5 months old and when I did I stated them with the orange veggies first and fruits like pears and apple sauce . You need to start one at a time and give it to your baby for a few days before starting something new to make sure they don't have any reactions to each food . Remember breast milk or formula is their main source of nutrition .


It is not recommended to feed a baby any solid food or baby food until they are 6 months old. Breastmilk or formula is all a baby needs for the first 6 months of their life. A baby's stomach and intestines are not able to digest food until they are 6 months old. Feeding baby food before 6 months can mess up the flora in the intestines.
