For years the advice has been 4 months, but there is shift happening more towards 6 months of age.
I started all of mine on cereal at 4 months but I don't see anything wrong with delaying it a little bit depending on the child.
I started my oldest a little after 4 months because I was so excited. I waited until a bit later with the other two.
I waited until 6 or 7 months with both of my girls. They were exclusively breastfed and I saw no reason to start other foods until they took an interest in it. That was a good decision for all of us, especially because I felt like life got harder once I added food! Besides cereal I didn't use baby food. It was so much easier, cheaper, and healthier to smush up food we already had.
That's awesome, the best way to do it!
It's hard to get parents to understand that, though! They often get defensive and feel judged when you share info like that.
I only breastfed until 6 months and then they started on small solids. I believed it was best for their immune system.
It is, they can't properly absorb the food until 6 months.
My first two started on cereal at 4 months, but the other kids all started at 6 month.
I started after 4 months.
