With Ava I waited the doctor recommended 4 months, but I caved with Harrison and we started cereal at 2 and 1/2 months. He's just such a big boy and I felt that he was ready. He has done a fantastic job. Some nights I can't get it in his mouth quick enough for him. He has had cereal every night since last Friday and each night he gets a little better with it. He is so interested in other people with food that I know he is longing for something else, but right now, we are sticking with just the cereal!
