    Default When to introduce frutis and veggies

    My daughter has been on rice/oatmeal cereal now for 2 weeks. She is not quite 6 months so I was wondering if I should wait a bit longer before doing fruits and veggies or would it be ok to start now?

    my daughter just started solids and I am going slow!! (She is 2 weeks shy of 6 months!) We do three-four days of one veggie at a time - once a day! Then after we have tried a good amount (5-6 types) we then will do the same with the fruits! We have done peas, squash, green beans and next will be sweet potatoes!

    We did rice/oatmeal for a month and a half before I started anything else and then started introducing only one new food a week. It is such a slow process, but your baby's stomach will thank you in the long run!

    Ok so we started with avocado last night and she really seemed to like it. Should I just do the avocado or should I do cereal at another point in the day?

    With Elijah I waited until he was 6 months exactly but with her I want to make sure she doesn't replace BM with food.
