    Farax is rice cereal....finely ground white rice. It comes i na box and you can get it organic too. They recommend it from 6 months.

    I prefer using mushed up brown rice though

    Babies tummies are not designed to have anything except breastmilk until the age of 6 months, rice cereal is bland and non-allergenic which is why they recommend starting with that.

    I never bothered with it though, looks and tastes like wallpaper paste to me

    I never used it because DS hated it and I can't blame him. Solids are recommended from 6 months and at that age, babies are more aware of different textures and like different tastes and can have a variety of fruit and veg.

    unless there is any medical reason, it is best to hold it off until 6 months

    The packaging says 4 months because there's no legislation to compel the manufacturers to change the packaging. They should change the packaging to be in line with the current recommendations - but that would cost them money. Just coz they make baby food doesn't necessarily mean they know anything about infant nutrition....

    As recently as 5 years ago, the recommendation was to start solids between 4 and 6 months. When we were little babies, our mums started us around 3 months. The more knowledge is gained about the infant's digestive system, the more is learned about what can possibly harm them. When we know better, we do better When I was a baby, mum used to just put me in a bassinette on the back seat of the car, no straps or seatbelts at all. I survived - but we know more these days about safety, so I wouldn't ever do that with my children. Doesn't mean my mum was negligent. She did the best she could, with the information she had available to her at the time.
    There is no harm in waiting longer - but you may cause harm to your baby's gut if you introduce solids too early.
    A baby's gut is "open", to allow instant digestion of breastmilk, because infant's bodies are designed to work symbiotically with it's mother's. Introducing solid food before the gut has closed can be harmful for the baby.

    Also, if bubby does have an allergic reaction, they can cope better with it if they're older. For example, if a 7 month old has an allergic reaction to banana, he can cope better and it maybe won't hit him as hard, as if you gave it to him at 2 months.
