what is the current reccommendation to introduce solids?
ive been told 6 months but i hear people say its 4 months
it used to be 4 but they now recommend 6, but i think it depends on your bub. if you think they need it then you can only give it a go.
I was told 6 months, then again they make food starting at 4 months. I tried my second one at 5 months and he refused until he was 6 months anyway. If you think they're ready, just try I guess....

I checked the WHO web site a couple of months ago and it's still 6 months, but there was another thread recently where somebody suggested the WHO recommendation was going to change back to 4 months.
I just followed the signs of readiness on the kellymom web site (which coincided with about 6 months), and we do baby led weaning anyway so he just takes what he wants.
My partner looks pretty healthy but his diet is pretty ordinary sometimes. Who knows what's happening inside his body!
Even if they are healthy, I think it's better follow the guidelines. Unless recommended by a doctor, why bother with solids at 3 months? It's just more work, if nothing else!
