    Question I know this has been asked but...

    what age or stage do you introduce cheerios? You would think a mom of 3 would remember but I can remember for the life of me. Ds did not follow the usual suggested stages of food for med. reason and well my oldest is 4.5yr and I can not remember. Part of me wants to say 6months the other part says after they get top and bottom teeth.

    Thanks for answering.

    Yes I think Luke was around 7 months when I gave them to him. He didnt develop a soild pincer until 10 mos though. I think it helped him develop it. He had been eating solids for 3 months so had gotten the idea of gumming food also.

    Well she has not put one in her mouth but she loves picking them up. I just give her three (so I can remember how many she started with) and if she eats them great if they are on the floor that is what my vaccum is for, right. I mean she is on stage 2 food for most everything but greens. She starts greens in two weeks and they we will cruise the 2nd and get more finger foods. woohoo
