With my daughter I started to introduce her to other foods when she was going well with the rice cereal and eating it (probably about 2 weeks I can't really remember). I then mixed some pureed apple, pear with the rice cereal at first before giving it on its own, then I think pumpkin was the first vege that i gave her, then i just went on from their and gradually started to increase other foods. All the best.

Hi there. I am a first time mum as well and I found starting solids very scary.. And still do.

My little boy is now 6months and he has only about a month ago has started on other solids other than cearal. My pediatrition told me that you can start solids any time.. So if you think that your little one is ready and you want to experiment then try.

All I done was introduced a new solid every 3 days....

Hope that this helps..

Take care and good luck.....

If you like we can email each other if you like???
