    We started at 7 months since we were certainly going to wait till 6 months and 7 seemed a-a bit funkier b-that's when my mother had me start.

    Truth is, LO tried to grab food at around 4-5 months. She also tried to "eat" plastic bags and newspaper at that time so I figured her judgement was unreliable

    You most certainly have the right to wait with a 4 month old baby. Sort of sad that your ped doesn't know WHO and APA recommendations.

    Thanks everyone! I'm going to wait until she shows some "signs" of wanting to try solids or when she hits 6 months. (whichever comes first)

    Thank you again!

    That's a good idea Sherri, I would wait too! Don't be in any kind of hurry to start solids. We didn't get serious with the solids until 8-9 months. Good luck when it's time!

    I haven't read the replies but it sounds totally normal to me. I would encourage you to wait till at least 6 months as well, if only for the "virgin gut" reason.

    I'm surprised that your ped would recommend doing that. Both mine have always been in the 50th % but our doctor still encourages waiting until they turn 6 months.

    I'd say do what you think is best for your little one but know that it's not necessary to start solids right now.

    Maybe you could add a few nursing sessions in to help with the calories?
