    No processed foods here for young babies; mine start on whatever we are eating - daughter's first taste of food was sucking on a lamb bone at, hmmm, 8 months? No real "eating" to it, just having fun and trying it out. Then fruit, vegies, cheese, other meats etc.

    Wow just read that 'white out' info. Is breast milk really insufficient after 6 months? What about when doing BLW, where not alot of food will be actually eaten and digested??
    We did delayed cord claiming. I knew it was best then, but didn't realize it could help for potentially an extra three months at solids stage! Yay!

    In the first month they seem to not eat a lot as they are getting used to chewing and gumming and swallowing but trust me by about 8-9 months they become eating machines !
    The best thing about BLW is they eat until they are full, not until we stop shoving a spoon in their mouth!

    Food from 6-12months is for learning , bm/formula is still their main source of nutrients and as pp said start them
    veggies,meat,fish etc so they do get the added vitamins and get used to a wide variety of flavours

    Baby led weaning. If you google there are some good websites.

    I gave DS farex early due to a GPs bad advice, I was later told by a paed and a nutritionist that you shouldn't try any solids before 6 months, they are well aware many GPs with outdated ideals are recommending this and it is a concern.

    With DD we did BLW from 6 months.

    I'm shocked mothers are giving 8 week old babies farex!!

    There are some parents in unusual situations where doctors may recommend it. For example my dd is 12 weeks tmw (adjusted) and we've been given the green light to start on rice cereal - by a consultant neonatologist and Australia's largest NICU. Then if she handles that we can introduce a new purée a week. She is only 4kg and not big enough to do BLW but is 6 months actual age and we've been told not to delay solids for too much longer.

    I think there are a lot of parents out there who think they're experts - you may know what works best for your baby, but you shouldn't judge what other parents do because you don't know their situation.

    Dd1 was 6 months ish and we did blw.

    Dd2 is 5mths but still can't sit upright completely by herself (being 9kg doesn't help!) so we are waiting for that before we start solids - again blw.

    I don't believe in giving babies rice cereal. I will happily cook rice and lentils myself but not processed stuff.
