I'm thinking of starting my DD on Solids. She is 5mos 1 week. I've been planning on waiting until 6months, but I'm thinking of starting this week. She's been very interested in what 'Mommy and Daddy' are eating. She grabs at my cup when I drink, she seems to be hitting milestones rather quickly (so I'm told)...ie rolling, pushing up, sitting up with a little support, stands with support...etc.
I guess I'm just trying to justify starting and make sure I'm starting because she's ready and not because of the pressure from everyone telling me she's ready.
If I do start, I'm planning on starting with rice cereal and waiting a couple days before giving her more to check for allergies. I have no allergies, but DH was allergic to milk and avocados when he was little. He's fine with everything now.
