Quoting JudyRebecca:" My daughter will be 4 months on the 18th of October. Her 3 month check up, her doctor said we will discuss ... [snip!] ... up alone, follows everything with her eyes! She's such a happy baby and SUCH a joy to have, i'm so thankful for her!!!! "
Quoting Chim Richalds:" That second picture is priceless. Delaying is to make sure they have a closed gut and are physically ready for solids. We waited with both our kids because I couldn't find a reason not to really."
Quoting Regina Stevenson:" She is a beautiful baby. Congrats!!! As for solids it really dpends on if they are ready. My son never ... [snip!] ... foods. Best of luck introducing the foods. Some of the faces she will make at trying new flavors and textures are priceless."
Quoting JudyRebecca:" Thanks!!! I think she's getting curious, because everytime I eat in front of her she follows the food ... [snip!] ... general every 3 hours in the day, and sleeps anywhere from 6-9 hours at night, eats and goes back to sleep another 1-2 hours."If she is following you and sucking on her top lip she could be ready. It wont hurt to try expecially if the Dr mentioned something about starting her on solids. My son was never a big fan of the cereals and I dont blame him the suck butt and taste like cardboard. Had some on my finger once and didnt have a burp rag handy ( ALWAYS have burp rag or wash cloth handy YOU WILL NEED IT!!!) and licked it off my finger. It wasnt the best and I didnt blame him for not liking them. And I figure the cerals are more of a "filler" food than have any actual nutrition to them. Thats why I would mix some ceral in with his food to make it a bit thicker and help him stay happy longer. Glad she is doing so well. But by the sounds of it she may be ready. Just dont force it on her and go with the flow. And I can COMPLETLEY understand being hesitant to start (expecially if she is your first) its the whole "my baby is growing up" factor and Ididnt want to witness it happening either but either way she is gonna grow up whether you want her too or not. I had to embrace that knowledge with my son and now he is a big old 4 yr old who goes to preschool. Enjoy the moments when it is only introducing foods that is scary because they grow up too damn fast!!!
