i know it's a personal decision and varies widely, but on average, most of the time, usually, generally, what age do babies start eating jarred/pureed foods? :huh: thank you! :)

my grandson started very young, 4 months old maybe? he was bottle fed and hungry. my grand daughter did not like baby food and was breast fed. She started soft solids about 7 or 8 months but never ate jarred food or pureed food.

mack was 6 mos and lily was 5 mos. my friend's baby was 4 mos. it all depends on when they reach their milestones. are they reaching for your food? are they copying your movements when you chew? etc.

I started early. I think Cate was 4 mos. she was breastfed & ate like a champ & slept great & then started waking in the middle of the night hungry, so I started solids & she went back to sleeping.

Jess was 3 mos because she had reflux & that helps keep everything down, but I only did cereals for about 2 months & then moved on to fruits & veggies.

Good signs that they're ready: they can hold their head up fairly well, tongue thrust disappears - they don't thrust the food out with their tongue

yup. but apparently me & Frank both got teeth that early. they say it's genetic. they are losing teeth early too. Cate is 6 & just lost her 5th tooth. Jess is 4 & just lost her 3rd! what's funny is they're falling out in the exact order they came in! :funny1:
