    Like someone else said, I see no point in starting any earlier.

    Sure, they watch us eat and look as though they want it... but I personally don't believe that is reason enough to start earlier than 6 months.
    I'm sorry, but I don't agree. Every baby is different, starting at 6 months may be too early for some and too late for others. A blanket approach whether that be 4 months or 6 months is not the answer.

    4 months. She'd watch me eat and move her mouth so I fed her pureed fruits and veges. Now she's 5 months and I give it to her mashed as it has a bit more texture and she's comfortable with it.

    We started DD at 5.5 months. I intended to wait till 6 months but she was having weight issues so paed suggested we start. I started with some purée apple or sweet potato and then expanded to finger food at 7 months. We now do a mix of both which woks well for us.

    4 months here. Recommend by her pediatrician. She probably could have waited a little longer, but the additional calories were needed to help her gain weight (and it helped her reflux a little too).

    Recommendations are recommendations, not laws. Instincts play a part too.

    I tried some rice cereal mixed with breast milk at around 5 months in the hope of getting more breast milk into him during the day (he was so distracted). He was interested but I could just see that he wasn't ready. His sitting balance was ok but I felt like it needed to be better. I was also not too fussed about starting solids until we were back in Australia so I didn't have to deal with food on the long flight (from Europe) at 5.5 months. Anyway I canned it and went with blw around 6 months and it worked out great.

    I meant to say also with the next child I will just assess the situation when we come to it and see what suits them.

    Oh i know....i just thought 3 months was a little too young unless there was a special reason for it. My mum started all if us at 4 months and all 6 of us turned out ok...
