    I started DD when she was almost 6 months. Her first food was banana. DP wanted to start her at 4 months because she was staring at us when we ate. She had greats head control and was mouthing lots of things. But she showed as much interest in everything else we did. She was just becoming more aware in general.

    Now she eats steamed vegies, cut up fruit, chunks of meat (gets little bits off but mostly just gnaws on it). I also make meals in the crockpot for her and store the in baby food jars for when we go out. These meals include things like shredded chicken, oats, barley, lentils, herbs, spices, fruit and veg. She chose BLW (wont let us feed her) and loves her food.

    I reluctantly started solids early with DS3 after his Paed said to. Its the best thing we did, he no longer cries all day and *gasp* he eats rice cereal or porridge every day or epse he returns to a screaming mess, it is helping control gis reflux. Ive been told im full of $ hit that it wouldnt help, ive been told im destroying his gut - but those people dont see the difference in him, they're not the ones who watched him scream for 4 months straight with nothing else working.

    Sounds like you 100% made the right decision for your baby. It is very frustrating when people cant understand so they just write off everything you say.

Its not really the same though. I hope that made sense.
    Oh yes i see wat u mean...and totally agree bub surely has to be ready for solids!
