hi i cant be absoulutley sure as my little girl is three now but i am sure that i started giving her just a teaspoon of baby rice before her last bottle of the day about 7 ish to help her go through the night at about 12 wks. it did help a lot and the health visitor was happy. we just built up from there. to be honest i dont think at that age they would take it anyway if they didnt want it. there are so many guidlines that we all feel we must follow and the pressure is high to do the right thing. but my opinion is do what is right for you and your child . i hope that this helps you . x

hi there, try and avoid any type of solid food at that age. Babes digestive system isnt fully developed yet and solids, even baby rice, can cause you a few more issues to deal with. Babe is going through a growth spirt about now too so that wont be helping. There is a formula on the market for extra hungry babies, it is more filling and should help. Ask you local chemist of the name and you should find it in a supermarket, or ring formula companys and ask if they make one till you find what you are looking for.

Gd luck with the weaning. I fed both mine at the same age. Some babies develop at diff rates and are not all text book. Im sure babba will enjoy and be happier when not so hungary. All the best. pupx

Goodluck with the solids, its a funny time. Very Happy I hope your health nurse gave you some ideas about what to start with. Im from the era when we were started at 3mnth too and my sister almost died because her body couldnt cope with anything else other than milk even though she was hungry. Thank goodness for the invention of hungry baby formula, it was a godsend for me and my son. It acts like solids in their tummy but is really easy digest.
O by the way, wear a towel, Im not sure who get messier in the beginning!!!! Very Happy
