I was feeding my daughter small amounts of baby rice cereal from the day she came home from the hospital, and started her on stage 1 baby food at about 2 1/2 months old...mostly veggies tho. Fruit makes the diapers pretty nasty. I would almost be willing to say it helped in her development, even to this day! She is now 17. Not a picky eater and still to this day LOVES her veggies!


Babies do not need solid foods until they are about 6 months old and starting them earlier will possibly cause them to have allergies if they are so prone.

I would suggest discussing this with your baby's doctor and following his or her advice.
