when did you start?

When did you start your baby on baby cerial? Which one did you use?

    We started oatmeal cereal after her 6 month checkup .
      We started with mashed bananas at 5 months. My pedi said that any solids before 7 or 8 months is more for developing the fine motor skills like moving food around with their tongue and swallowing then anything else. Nutrition should still be coming from formula or breast milk. He also said that if your baby seems interested try starting with something that's more nutritious and flavorful then cereal . Cereal is basically empty calories that can fill them up so they won't take as much formula, which is what you really want them to have. Plus, it's so bland that it can be harder to introduce flavorful food later... That's why we did mashed banana :)
