    First dd - 7 months (she wasn't interested in solids). She hated rice cereal but loved oatmeal. Second dd - a little before 6 months. She was really wanting to eat solids and kept reaching for my food at dinner. Same thing - hated rice cereal but loves oatmeal, pureed veggies and fruits. At 9 months, we are just starting to get interested in finger foods. I still haven't tried any meats, though. I feed her solids twice per day - breakfast and lunch (at dc) or dinner (weekends at home).

    Dd was almost 6 months, she got banana 1st and then avocado. I used to give her solids once a day, then a few weeks later we increased that to 2 or 3 times per day, depending on how often she wanted to eat solids.

    DD was almost 6 months and she had natural applesauce. I had tried cereals and she hated all of them and she still does.

    my last two babies were about 9-12 months old and we started with high iron meats. They realy didn't eat alot of solids untill much older then 12 months.

    Rice cereal at 4 MO he loved it.

    Banana, cantelope, and sweet potato at 5.5 MO. Hates them all- he's not ready for solids yet.

    First solids at 5.5 months- sweet potato (couldn't have cared less)
    Since then- pears, apple, green beans, broccoli, carrots- loves them all, he's 6 and a bit months now. Still no love for the sweet potato though.

    We're doing BLS and he actually eats a surprising amount of what we give him, judging by the lumps in his diapers. He had broccoli on turkey day and I thought he just squished it to pieces and smeared it everywhere untill the next three days diapers were full of broccoli

    5.5 months.. apple, pear and banana in a mesh feeder.. (not together- at separate times)
    She will be 6 months sat.. she has had oatmeal and sweet potatoes as well. We do a few spoonfuls of solids every other day or every few days.

    DD was 6 months when we started her on organic rice cereal and oatmeal mixed with breastmilk. After that it was banana, avocado, squash and sweet potato. She was ready for solids and loves all kinds of foods!
