While we were in Babies R Us getting RJ some toys, I snuck and put some Organic Bananas and Sweet Potatoes in the cart. DH didn't notice til we got to the front. He also has a little blue bowl and a spoon. He can sit up and move his head fully with little support so he didn't have a problem. He loves the bananas and fuss like I'm not feeding him fast enough.

Dillon has absolutely NO interest in table food yet. We will hold food up to his mouth and he doesn't know to open his mouth, so we'll keep trying. When he starts showing some interest (or at least opening up for a bite) then maybe we'll pull out the cereal.

Most doctors say 6 months now, but are okay with four months (that's when I started DS).

My doctor said four months, but rj was chewing like he wanted food so I gave it a try and haven't had a problem. I make sure I breastfeed him first

I was thinking of starting ceteal soon, too. Not that I'm one to speak since my oldest was eating jar food at 3 months, but aren't we supposed to wait on food until 4 months? Also, does starting lo one cereal & jar food effect bf at all? I want to try and bf Aubrey until a year and I'm worried that if I start filling her tummy up with food that I won't be able to produce/pump enough for her.

Way to go RJ! I gave some cereal and oatmeal in his bottles when he was around 3 weeks for reflux.

It's going to be so hard to wait! Olivia wouldn't take a spoon till she was 8 months so I hope this little isn't that way.
