When did the doctor say you can give the baby cereal and jar food? My doctor said if we wanted to give the baby a little cereal we can start at 4 months. Are you giving your baby cereal already? When will you? Why aren't you?

We started DS at 4months...my kids are bigger and DS was about the size of 6 month old at 4months. We did cereal at 4mos and started foods b/t 5-6 months. I did the earths best jar food and made some. I am going to try to make more this time...

I tried adding cereal and oatmeal to Breylon's nilk bottles when he was 3 weeks old cause the dr. said it'll help w/ the choking sounds from reflux.

We haven't discussed this yet with the doctor. With dd#1 I started with cereal & carrots at 3 months because she was grabbing food off my plate at 2 1/2 months. She did great right from the start. With ds I started cereal at 6 months. We also began adding cereal to his bottles at that age because the nurses at the hospital were giving me a hard time about how I was "starving him" because he was only 16 pounds (never mind that he had lost several pounds before the stupid ER finally hospitalized him after having a fever of 106 for a few days and had stopped eating). Unless the doctor tells me otherwise I'll probably start Aubrey on cereal at about 4 - 5 months and fruits and veggies closer to 6 months.
