When to introduce solid food
beautifulbuffalo posted:
My grandson is 4 months old and has stomach problems where he has trouble holding down special prescription formula so Dr said try him with some cereal. He loved it. Mom wants to give vegetables. I think it's to early for that. Maybe after the cereal for awhile some fruit.

Any help out there. (not that my daughter will listen to me as she has her own mind).

Ive always heard to start with sweet potatoes, my son didnt like em so i started with bananas.

Food is started anywhere between 4-6 months. If he has stomach problems, I would probably have this discussion with the pedi first. But to answer your question, I really don't think it matters what she starts next. As long as she waits a couple of days between each new food to watch for any negative reactions. I always heard to start vegetables first so the child gets a taste for it. Fruits are sweeter so babies generally eat them easier then vegetables. But again, I really don't think it matters.
