Hi there, my bub is 6 and 1/2 months old and has been enjoying solids since he was 5 months. I was told to offer bottle or breast first at this age and then half and hour later or so offer solids. I started with rice cereal in the morining ( so you can keep an eye on bub all day to see if any reactions), after his bottle. Just a little bit to start off then increase amount before adding a second and third solid meal to bub's diet. After your bub gets the hang of rice cereal add pureed fruit and vegies into there diet introducing one at a time. My bub loves fruit but not too keen on vegies. I just keep trying him with vegies and one day Im sure he'll suprise me. Hope some of this helps you out.

If you think you have forgotten after 3 1/2 years try thirteen years!!!!! My daughter started farax at 8weeks at dinner time and she slept right through and that's all I remember. My son is now 4mths old and has been having farax for about 3 weeks.I give him his farax fist thing in morning then a bottle, he has the pear and banana farax for lunch and a bottle and has normal farax for dinner than a bath and then abottle and is sleeping until 6.30-7am. I went and had his needles the other day and he was the biggest baby there but also the happiest so I think it is o.k anyway I hope this helps.I also hope my memory comes back soon I feel like a first timer!!!!!!
