    The question asked in the opening post was -
    What age has everyone started or is going to start their babies on farex and baby food.
    and I think members are responding to the opening post

    6 months, farex and everything and anything mashed up. The whole hype of blw isnt for me, I like to sit down, feed baby and know she has eaten it - I dont have all day to watch her suck a carrot stick to just throw it on the ground. DD1 same food but started at 4 months, didnt harm her at all.
    Go with your instinct and medical advice.

    Have you tried BLW? Because it really isn't about sucking on a carrot stick.

    Default Farex

    DS started on rice cereal at 4 months as he was showing signs he was ready:
    - large baby
    - lost tongue thrust reflex (as verified by a mchn)
    - could hold head up
    - showed an interest in food

    I am curious as to what reasons your doctor provided for starting solids? And what (if any) guidelines surrounding the use of solids were prescribed? Eg did your doctor assign rice cereal only for reflux? for thickening milk feeds? What readiness signs Is your bub displaying?

    I don't think it's unreasonable that people ask questions as:
    - current recommendations are
    Bubs start solids between 4-6 months (possibly to be upped to 6 months with recent Australian studies). It is quite reasonable for people to be a little surprised at a 13 week old bub starting solids. It is absolutely reasonable for someone to gawk at an 8 week old starting solids.
    - you are asking questions on when other bubs started. If you are confident in the decision to start your bub on solids now then why would you bother to ask what other bubs did?

    Yes that is exactly right I was asking about your OWN children not to (what seemed like to me) tell me how to raise MY baby. He has had 2 nights now where I have spoon fed him a little amount of farex mixed with formula and has seemed more settled and happy then he was last week when I couldn't get enough formula into him so I will stick with the farex for a bit longer then slowly introduce more baby food then when I think he is old enough I will make what my husband and I call Mummy meals of fresh meat and vegetable puréed and mashed with formula just like we did with our other 2 children.

    I was starting a general conversation as this topic has come up in my mothers group quiet often, my Dr recommended it as bub is constantly hungry and screaming for food it was getting to the point of what felt like he never stopped so she suggested introducing farex at 13 weeks rather then 16 weeks
