I'm pretty sure that if you read the "stage 2" packaging, they advise waiting longer- and their whole goal is to sell lots of baby food, so if even they say wait, I would think waiting is a good idea. The American academy of pediatrics advises waiting until 6 months old for ANY solids, let along chunks. Poor baby still probably has a tongue thrust reflex, and her mouth and reflexes are not designed to handle chunks. They used to say 4-6 months but changed it recently because it is healthier. Which makes sense to me. Like, is there any way strained (or chunky) carrots is even close to the nutrition of breast milk or formula?
