My little guy is just over 5 months old, so we're thinking about solids. I'm wondering about waiting until he's closer to 7 months (or more, even) before starting him on anything though because he's got allergies, and is gaining weight wonderfully on just breast milk. Plus, he seems satisfied on bm. So I'm not in a rush to do solids.
But I seem to remember my doctor telling me when my older ds was this age, that they need some sort of iron supplement starting around 6 months (he recommended starting on iron fortified cereal), because they have stores from birth that last up to about 6 months.
This doctor has said some other questionable stuff, so I'm not 100% confident that he really knows what he's talking about when it comes to babies (he's just a gp).
Anyone know anything about this?
