4 months, but she said it depends on the baby. My baby was trying to eat off of our plates and his was the size of a 9 month old at 4 months. On top of it up until a couple years ago it was always 4 months. They just switched to 6 months because they claim it will make babies obese and cause allergies. Which is not true, waiting until 6 months have been causing a lot of babies to have taste aversion.

Didn't ask lol I knew my baby could handle the oatmeal at 7 weeks!!! Now three months she's still having oatmeal in her milk. Rice cereal she didn't like it made her gassy 😩👎 Every doctor and website says something different so I just went with my mommy gut!

4 months. Be careful with too much rice though with the arsenic. Google it if you haven't hear. FDA recommends only once serving of rice cereal per day due to carcinogens.

We got the ok at 5.5 months, but my girls didn't like it, so we went to stage 1 foods

Between 4-6 months, depending on your baby like how they're doing with weight gain.

My doctor had me put rice cereal in his bottle to help with his acid reflux at 3 months. So I would say 4!

Cali^Mom asks My 5 year old keeps putting her hair in her mouth all the time. Any ideas on how to break the habit? She started it last summer and I just put it in a pony or braid every day until she stopped but now she's started it again and her hair is so long the pony or braid reaches to her mouth. I don't have time some mornings for elaborate hair styles. Help!
