When did you start giving them baby food & juice?



By their adjusted age, or by their actual age?

Adjusted. She was 6 months actual, but 3 months adjusted. No way I was going to give her rice cereal that early. Haha.

Thanks everyone. (0: DS is 6 months but was born 2 months early; His pedi said at his 4 month check up to not feed him any solids & juice until he was 6 months old adjusted & 8 months old actual. Everyone keeps telling me I'm stupid for waiting, it's making me mad ha.

my friend started at her adjusted age of 6 months, however her daughter spent 51/2 months in the NICU.

We did prune juice in the formula since she was about 1-2 months adjusted, for constipation. We did solids at 4 months adjusted but it was to help her with the issues she had with her bottles, and it helped immensely. If she didn't have these problems we wouldn't have started as early as we did.

You know your baby, if you think they are ready or just plain hungry then do it, just start small and slow. You can put cereal in bottle. 1 tsp to a couple ounces will still be thin, but was enough to help mine sleep better. I was given recipes from a dietician.
