    Default Rice Cereal When To Start?

    I was just wondering when you ladies started your little one on rice cereal?
    My doctor said to start him any time and the health nurse said no not yet so I am confused as to what to do.
    Any suggestions?

    My daughter is 5.5 months and we haven't started her yet. I think we're going to give it a shot around the 6 month mark.

    DD's Dr told us that we could start her somewhere between 4 to 6 months. But I think the general consensus is to wait until closer to 6 months. We tried some just to see what she thought of it. She ended up being allergic to it so we're now waiting until she's 6 months. Some babies seems to do fine if you start it early tho. Most of the people I know who have babies started them around 5 months.

    Usually Dr. recommend to start at 6 months b/c then they are most likely to have easy digestion. My son started at 5.5 months b/c he was just that hungry..some babies need to start early b/c they have big appetites. Do whats best for your baby so they stay satisfied

    my son started it around 4 months, cause he was still hungry , and a week after we mixed in baby food , he is on baby food 3 times a day mixed with rice cereal and formula at night, just watch for constipation(sp?) if your lo gets pluged up stop for a couple days and start again , and make it really liquidy to start. thats what my doc says , if your lo wants to eat, let them
