I know my babe is at the earlier end of the group so this is extra early for many of you but I'm wondering what you all are thinking about starting solids. With DD1 we did the Dr. Sears recommended approach of starting at 6 months (when she was super interested and ready) and giving one single ingredient at a time and spread out by 3-5 days.
DD2 is 4 1/2 months old and the dr. suggested that if she's interested we might try giving her solids. Seems early but not way too early. I found myself wondering though why some people wait until babes are 9 months, a year, etc... I've never really understood what the argument is for delaying solids a long time.
So, I'm wondering what you all are thinking. Do your babes seem ready and interested? Do you have ideas about what the first food will be? How worried are you about introducing them slowly?
I'm not sure when we'll do it but I'm thinking we'll start with avocado, yum!
