Six to 9 months - For liquids Breast milk or formula

For solids (iron-fortified cereals, pureed or strained fruits and vegetables)

3 to 9 tablespoons cereal given over 2 to 3 feedings per day

1 teaspoon fruit, gradually increased to 1/4 to 1/2 cup in 2 to 3 feedings per day. Banana, pears, applesauce, peaches, apricots, plums, and avocado.


.it is recommended, by the American Pediatric Association, that babies are given breastmilk or formula until they are 6 months of age.

Babies are just learning to sit up at 4 months old so it has been argued that it is dangerous to put solid food in a baby's mouth. Not only that, but they are also not developed the proper gut bacteria to be able to process the solid food safely.
