I have been reading the recents post today about starting solids and I have a few questions I am hoping to get some advise on. My DD is 4 1/2 months and she had her 4 month check up last Friday. Her pedi said that it was okay to introduce solids starting with the rice cereal if we wanted. I told her how my DD just gives DH and I the funniest looks while we are eating like she is going to grab the food out of our hands and gobble it up herself .
My question is when is a good time to start. If it was up to DH she would have been given bananas after the first day of life(he loves feeding babies). I don't want anything to interfere with Bfing. We have been giving her rice cereal for the past 4 days only once and that is in the evening when she is up with DH(she has no schedule ). So far she still nurses just as she had before.We are not interested in giving her cereal to prolong her sleeping she does just fine I think the more awake she is the more time I get to be with her. I work all day so I time is limited Any suggestions?
