Lo was born at 35 weeks and we started solids around 7-8 months. We delayed it a while because I felt he wasn't ready for it. 2 months is a little young IMO

i had twins at 34 weeks and they started eating pablum around 3 months and beginner veggies at 5 months and then ate the food accordingly to their age. My doc told me that since they started getting milk the day after they were born that their digestive system is that of the age the really are.

5 months. But he only eats about half a jar and then the rest is formula.

My son wasn't interested in trying solids until he was probably 8-9 months. (would have been 5-6 months corrected though!). He was born at 28.1 weeks and was more with his corrected age rather than real age until he was around 17 months old.
