We had to start dd on solids early because of constipation and it has worked amazingly well.
I have been giving her a couple of tablespoons of spinach, broccoli, kiwi fruit and peas once a day but want to start trying different things.
What are everyone's thoughts on weetbix or something like that? Any other foods I can try?

Foods for a 4 month old?

Fresh avocado, just scoop out straight from the fruit.
I would normally say just use your imagination and have fun making different purees etc, but with your bub starting so young I'm not sure if everything I started DD would be suitable?
How about pumpkin? Banana?
Oh and weetbix is a great breakfast, I started of mixing in a little formula (or breast milk if you bf) before we progressed to cows milk.

we started at 4 months. here is wat bub tried at this age:
All pureed of couse...
sweet potato & broccoli
apple & zucchini
pear & fig
I mixed and alternated different fruits n veg and sometimes added iron fortified baby cereal.
You can definitely start solids at 4 months but wait until 6 months before introducing yoghurt, cheese, or meat . Have fun !

I'd be wary of banana and weet-bix if your bub has had issues with constipation (both bound my bubs up quite badly)
Sweet potato, pumpkin, pears are all good and easy on tummies. If you wanted a cereal, I'd have a look in the baby aisle and see what's there.

Such great ideas. Thank you. Just don't want her to get bored with solids. Will give all those a go!

My DD has a sluggish digestive system too so I make porridge and run the stick blender through it and mix with purée pears. Goes down a treat (on days she wants eat!)
I've been told by CHN to give DD kiwi fruit but another nurse said it was too acidic for young babies. How did your bub go with it? I just go hard on purée pears and prunes!

She isn't a fan of kiwi fruit on its own. Haha. Funniest face ever! We are also just smashing out the pears and prunes and surprisingly blueberries are awesome!! So we are just adding that to everything we feeding her.
