I wanted to wait till 6 months or older, but at 5 months DD1 was taking food from me and putting it in her mouth! So, we started slow! Remember, the recommendation is this- 6 months only BF (or formula) then after that for the next 6 months food is suppose to be a suppliment to the nursing, not to take the place of feedings.

They can give a sence of confidence in your skills to the people your working with, but in reality they don't mean your any better then anyone else. Many people choose not to certify with specific groups because when you do, you are also agreeing to their scopes of...
