best time to introduce solids
I have a 2 month old baby and I wonder if what is the best month or the best time rather to introduce solid food to him? Or even Liquids.

Ahhh - well, you'll find that we're big proponents of baby led weaning, in this forum. Most babies are not interested in solids (and can't move food to the back of the mouth well) until they're about 6 months old. Some babies aren't even interested until they are 8 months or a year.
But food should be a fun experience for children before they are one, and the milk they receive should be their main source of nutrition. After the age of one, food takes on a more important roll in providing nutrition for baby, and this is the time when they start the weaning process.
Here's another thread where we discussed baby led weaning, and you'll get to watch a video too!
