5 month old baby feeding: should I start solids?
Many pediatricians are recommending that babies start solids at 6 months of age, but some people like to start as early as 4 months. When starting solids its best to start with oat, rice or barley cereal. Then vegetables such as green peas, sweet potatoes and acorn squash. For fruit try pears, apples, avocados and bananas.
