Yes..recommened: It is often recommended that baby can start table food, typically stage1 such as gerber baby food etc..Try a little bit at a time, and stay with one food for 5-7 days, then add another if she does well. Changing foods frequently u may not know which is ok or which causes her problems such as diarrhea/constipation etc.. Each oz has 20calories, same as forumla.. Consult doc. Have fun and good luck.

Yes: Yes, it is ok to start stage one foods at 4 months. I suggest starting vegetables first, one at a time, then moving to fruits.
