OK I may get a lot of complaints here....but I am putting this out there if your child is eating non stop start rice cereal NOT MUCH but like a tsp.....My son justin started to eat table foods at 3-4 months granted I am also calling table foods as my homemade baby foods because I do not agree with all the preservatives in the baby foods to make them last a long time. So if I eat it he does to granted his is without spice! and he has done great! I say follow your natural instinct because only you know your child better then anyone even the doctors and what is normal for the average baby! But do let your doctor know!
