    Nina didn't start baby food until the doctor said it was ok around 4 months, and we started on stage 2 foods because she refused rice cereal and stage 1. For real real solid table foods though? Not until she hit one and got the pediatric "Ok". She had some puff snacks for a month or two before hand, and cheerios, but otherwise just formula and stage 3 foods.

      We started a 6 months, as suggested by the AAP :) Hayden may have gnawed on a cracker or something a little earlier because her brother and sister were very eager to share for a couple weeks, but she never actually got much until we started feeding her for real around 6 months.

        We started at 7 months with her Dr permission but her main food was bm.
