Um, you shouldn't. Ever. Not unless your baby has reflux and your doctor ordered it.

to spoon feed them or are you talking about actually mixing it in with their bottle? if you mean bottle.. then never unless recommended by your pedi if your child has some sort of acid reflux or other problem

Around 6 months you can safely start introducing food to your LO. But never in the bottle. Baby could choke easily.

I always waited until around 5 months to introduce cereal, and that was only using a bowl and spoon. Never give cereal in a bottle unless the dr tells you too.

I would hope not, but you never can be too sure.

no, I'm not considering it now. I know he's too young for it.

just like they all said with a spoon never a bottle. also it is worth the wait on feeding solids. and just think the more you push off having solids the less super stinky diapers you will get.

yea, your actually supposed to give the fruits after the veggies because they are more allergenic. As for when to feed them that all depends on the dr. My grandma was told to feed one of her sons food at about 1 month old...she did and then he wouldn't have anything to do with food until sometime after he was 1 year old.
