My 4 Month Old Son Has 2 Bottom Teeth Can I Start Giving Hin Solid Foods
Depends on your def: Most pediatricians recommend not starting solid foods until closer to 6 mo, and of course starting with rice cereal. Starting with rice cereal between 4-6 mo is acceptable, and stage i foods at 6 mo. Table foods, which are typical "solids" are not indicated until closer to 9 mo.

My five month old son is constipated. (He just started eating solid foods.) Any tips or ideas on how to get his bowel movements back to normal?
A little juice.: If your son is having stools that are soft then he is likely not constipated, even if he is only having a bowel movement every couple of days. The introduction of solid foods can change the frequency of bowel movements as the solid foods take longer to process than milk or formula. If his stools are very firm, adding a small amount of juice to his bottles may help. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can I give Chicken r turkey to my 6 month old son? What are some good solid foods to give at this age?
Yes: It is okay to give pureed chicken or turkey so long as your baby is able to sit holding his head up well, and has already tolerated mushier foods. Usual first foods are baby cereal, veggies, and fruits. To make sure you know whether your baby has a reaction to a new food, always start only one new food at a time.

Since everyone heals differently it is impossible to give you an exact time frame, but if it doesn't bother you, you can use your own good judgement and eat it. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Our almost 4 month old son has recently started putting his fingers so far into his mouth that he ends up gagging. No signs of teeth ... Normal?
That is very common: You probably will see a whole hand/fist in his mouth some day, and when he gets a hold of his foot, it may end up in his mouth as well. It is very common and so don't go crazy. It is harmless--virtually all babies do that to some extent. Enjoy the baby. He is priceless. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
