Baby Food

Anyone know when they usually recommend to start feeding your little one baby food like Gerber, etc? I am planning on using regular table food pureed in a blender for my lil one. Starting off with just the basics - apples, non-green veggies, etc. His Dr doesnt want him on greens just yet like my first two we waited a few months before introducing the greens.

Its usually recommended to start baby cereal around 4 months and vegetables/ fruit around 5-6 months. I plan on making a lot of my own fruit and veggies too but I heard something about not making your own carrots because they have a high level of nitrates so I need to research that. I can't wait until I can start feeding Genevieve :)

Good to know about the carrots. We bought a baby bullet :) But I'll ask my Dr about the carrots when the time comes. Thanks for replying :)

Youre welcome. I'm hoping the thing about carrots isn't true because they'd be so easy to make.
