    Default When to start solids?

    I started DS on solids when he was 6 months old, but doctor told me that I should start at 4 months. DS turned out to be a very fussy eater. My friend started her DS on solids at 4 months and he pretty much eats anything that's offered.
    When did you start your babie on solids and are they fussy eaters?

    My ds is 5 months and I've introduced a bit of apple and pear. He likes it but he's not big on it iykwim. I don't think he is ready tbh. He will eat it but he is not a guts. He loves sucking on rusks though. But he puts everything into his mouth even his toes lol

    6 months , which is now the latest recommendation and now 26 month old DS is not fussy ( some things he does not like - potatoes or eggplant - so I don't offer them much!)
    I don't believe when you start leads to fussiness though, my friend started at 5 months and her son is pretty fussy, my SIL started my niece at 7 months and now at 16 months eats anything and everything!

    I started mine when I thought they were ready. DD at 6 months on rice cereal etc.. but she wasn't terribly interested until 9/10 months. She's 7 now and I don't think she's fussy.

    DS1 at 5.5 months BLW and he inhaled anything you put in front of him, he's four/nearly five and again not fussy IMO. He doesn't eat absolutely everything, but neither do I and I'm 34.

    DS2 started at 6.5 months (4.5 corrected) BLW and he's still breastfed on demand and eats like a bird! At fourteen months he's only 8kg and wearing 00's

    I don't think that the time a child starts solids has any baring on their future fussiness.

    Default When to start solids?

    Dd was so hungry at 3 myths old her poor stomach was so swollen with milk to try and keep up I started with small amounts of farex as directed by my dr but she was on solids by 4 mnths, I guess it depends on the baby. Dd will eat everything except for peas but she doesn't eat very much she grazes but that's what I did when I was little too

    I started DD the day she turned 4 months as she had reflux and I really hoped the food was going to cure it - nope wrong!

    Im lucky though she eats absolutely everything I give her, but unfortunately she has food intolerances and allergies, so Im limited as to what I can give her

    We started DD at 6 months with BLW. She's now 2 and has always been an incredibly adventurous eater. People are constantly amazed at her enthusiasm for such a wide variety of food. Her cousin was started at 6 months with BLW and is a very fussy eater. I think it has very little to do with weaning age and style and more to do with the individual child's temperament and what the mother eats when breastfeeding and in late pregnancy
