    My DD2 is 6.5 months now. I started trying once a week at 4 months but she didn't seem ready. I started going daily at 6 months and that's kind of when everything turned to sh1t! Could still be a coincidence...

    They recommend 4 months for solids now. But I think it's really when they are ready, showing an interest and swallowing it fine.

    The UK is very strictly 6 months and the WHO is 6 months as well. The health nurse told me definitely not before 22 weeks. I thought Victoria at least was more towards 6 months? Is it only Tizzie that recommends 4?

    Depends on your health nurse, family doctor, paed or who ever else you see. The guidelines via my DS's dietician are 5 1/2 months to 6 1/2 months no earlier no later. But my doctor paed and Mchn said to try now to help with the reflux.

    I've decided the easiest way to get through the day with DS now is to baby wear.

    I just googled and it said Australia is 6 months. Agree and understand with Literally though that your dr may recommend.

    Mmm I'm confused

    What's the worst part of teething for a baby? Isn't it BEFORE the tooth comes through the gum?

    DS tooth is through, well it feels like it is, he hasn't been unsettled at all apart from the night wakings but is easily settled after a quick feed. But today twice he's cried hysterically.

    I've never heard him cry so much and I'm worried

    His cheeks were a bit red earlier and he has had a bit of dribble but I can't understand why his teeth would be giving him grief when it's already come through? And if it's a 2nd tooth coming that's causing the pain, then why wasn't he this unsettled and upset when the first one came?

    I'm also worried as yesterday DS1 head butted him accidentally REALLY hard. DS2 was lying on the couch when DS was standing in front of him and he threw his head back really hard and fast and their heads hit

    It was right in DS2's face

    He cried a LOT but settled afterwards and he was fine all yesterday and last night. But today seems so unsettled and upset

    I was going to take him to hospital yesterday but then he was fine after he stopped crying and then this morning I was going to take hi again as he cried but then we thought it was his teeth hurting and he settled down after some Panadol...

    I'm so confused

    The crying it's obviously just the day for it. My DS is usually sooky but has had a few hysterical episodes today.

    Poor bubba! Can you ring the health direct line and get their advice on the head injury?
