Re: Solid ?'s..my baby girl just made 5 months;)
I think it depends on your baby. Some are ready that early and some aren't. Our ped suggested 5 months as a start for DD, so that was when we first tried her on rice cereal. She loved it, and swallowed it all down. You could always try a few bites, and if she's not ready yet, you'll be able to tell. It will all get pushed back out, because she won't be able to get it to the back of her mouth to swallow, or she just won't be very interested. If that happens, I'd say wait a couple weeks and try again.
That said, if you're happy with nursing, there's nothing wrong with waiting another month, either. I think most babies are interested in whatever mama's doing, and it doesn't necessarily mean she really wants your food.
