they are still deemed as solid foods and should be avoided to 6 months or as close as-- though i started to wean 4 days ago on the advice of my HV- so my LO started rice at 5months- she hates it so i have now moved onto veg puree's.
It's best to wait until 6 months, as early weaning increases the risk of health problems later in life. The earliest you should wean is 17 weeks. The time will fly past and you'll be weaning before you know it.
Definately agree with what others have said its too early for you yet... I am going to try lo on baby rice in a couple of weeks when she is 22 weeks old (5 months) and see how she goes but won't be forcing it upon her even at that point
Ronan is almost 16 months now and I still have days where I wish he was just on milk! BFing was sooo much easier and so much less mess!
More seriously, as the other ladies said, best to wait until as close to 6 months as possible. A lot of things used to be done that we've found out since and with research and studies aren't such a great idea.
