Just curious what the answers will be. This is baby #3 for me so you would think I would know, but #2 refused solids into her first and second years.....(issues obviously). So it really has been since my first who is 4 1/2 now....

hmmmmm... now i have to try to think back a bit too:) I seem to remember Piper eating all or most of her fruits or veggies- stage one. she never took to cereal no matter what i mixed with it, so i couldn't tell you there.

I made my own food so I went by cube size but I think I did about 2 oz 2 times a day. Neither of my boys took to cereal either. But when I tried I would just sprinkle a tbsp or so in the fruit or veggie. At 5 mths they should be mostly BM or Formula.
