When can I Start Giving my Infant Cereal?

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, cereal and other foods should be introduced after six months of life. In reality, this decision has much to do with the development of your child and little to do with an age marker. Look for the clues your baby is ready to eat off a spoon. When the rest of the family is eating, does your baby look interested? Some babies will gaze longingly at your plate and even drool! When your baby is sitting on your lap or in a supportive chair, such as a Bumbo, is he able to hold his head steady without looking like a little bobble doll? A baby cannot eat from a spoon if he cannot keep a steady head!
