well ds is now almost 5months and i really need to start looking into this. at our 4month appt his ped. told me to go ahead and start giving him cereal at 5months along with a mutli-vitiamian (poly-so i think). i feel as he dosent need the multi-vit bc he is still a EBF'd baby and at least till he's 6months he is getting EVERYTHING he needs from bm. i also dont think he's ready for solids yet. he's not lunging for our food when we eat and not sitting up alone.
i've read on this board that babies can thrive on mamas milk for a yr or longer BUT do i need to give him the multi-vitiamans after 6months if we delay solids? also i heard that by delaying solids some babies have a texture problem when they are toddlers??
