Baby G had his 4 month doctor's appointment a few days ago and the topic came up of starting Baby G on baby food. I was against it at first. I had been reading up on how you should wait until the child is 6 months old before you start baby food, but what the doctor said made sense. It doesn't have anything to do with the age but instead the weight of the child. Since Baby G is 18 lbs 10 oz and 27 1/2 inches long putting him in the 90 percentile for weight and off the charts for height he is a good candidate to start baby food. The doctor said that I should go with my gut. Wait until I think Baby G needs it. Like I said, I planned to wait a while but then I started hearing lil Baby G's tummy growling often through out the day and I knew that it was time. So this morning before Mr. G went to work we fed Baby G his first bowl of cereal. This was a big deal because Baby G had never tasted anything other than breastmilk.
