When did you start giving solids to your baby?

For all moms out there, when did you start giving solids to your baby? Some pediatrician says that you can start giving solids at four months while others said to wait until the baby reaches six months.

Andi is now four months old and her pedia told me that I could start introducing solid to her. She is eyeing everything I put in my mouth ! She even wakes up when it is meal time. Sometimes she grabs my plate when I ate while holding her. What do you do when your baby do that? Do you just give in and feed her or you still wait until she reaches the exact age?

A lot of moms told me to wait until six months because it has it's benefits. They said that your child has decreased risk for allergies and diabetes later in life if you start solids at this age.

Maybe I should wait then. :-)

The throat sighs!

well, it really depends on the parents to when to give solid foods to their babies. in my case i started introducing solid foods to my eldest son when he was 4 months old and he is 3 years old now. on the other hand my second child she is 5 months now and i just started giving her too i puree her food so she can have all the nutrients from it. i will try to not to give her process food. Well, my mom back home in the philippines they started giving solid food to my niece when she was just 3 months old. so it just probably depends on what parents believe and comfortable with.
