My daughter is a couple weeks shy of 5 months. My mom says that I should’ve been giving her rice cereal already, but I’ve heard from other friends to wait until 6 months and to start with mild veggies instead of grains? Any tips?
We had a great conversation about transitioning to solids with Kacie Barnes from mamaknowsnutrition.com - she suggests waiting till 6 months… have a listen to our podcast to get some more great tips and insights

I’m home with number four who is already 6.5 months and while she has already tasted a few things, there are days, even weeks !! Where I don’t feed her “solids” just because I don’t have the time!!
I wouldn’t stress about it if I were you. All kids want to eat and taste eventually - she won’t be drinking bottles/nursing forever! Take your time and enjoy the less prep options! Go with your gut, you’ll know when the time is right for you and your baby.
Best advice is to Ask your doctor ! Guidelines are Changing and evolving ( remember when many of us were babies we were put to sleep on our bellies!)
That being said the norm is usually around 5 months
