Hello ladies, I am a mother of four my little one is 3 1/2 months old ( it's been ten years since I had a baby). I was wondering when you ladies started feeding your little ones and how much did you start with? Thanks for all your input.

I just started giving my 4.5-month-old rice cereal. He gets a bottle 4 times a day (around 8am, 12pm, 4pm and 8pm) and he gets about 1.5 teaspoons of rice cereal (mixed with formula) at his 4pm feeding. And that's BEFORE his bottle. In about a week or so, I'll add a morning feeding of rice cereal, so he'll get that before his 8am bottle.

hi, last week I started my 4 mth on rice cereal -- he loved it -- also kept up with the bottle 4x/day. Today I moved him on to oatmeal - all good. He gets 1 tablespoon of rice with 3.5 tablespoons of formula at his noon feeding. He is a big boy 18lbs, I was feeding him a bottle every 2 hrs...so moved on to cereal -- much better.

I didn't give ds any solids until 6 months. When I finally gave him cereal, he had issues with constipation, so looking back, I'm glad I didn't have to deal with those problems with a younger baby. We started with a couple of tablespoons with a lot of b___stmilk, so it was soupy. Ds didn't like it that way though, so I made it the consistency of stage 1 baby food, which he liked a lot more.

Thanks ladies for all your input. What did you ladies start first cereals, veggies or fruit. With my older kids I started with rice cereal, then oatmeal and others , then green veggies then yellow then fruit in any order.
