Hi Alicia,

Welcome!  I think it's perfectly ok that she is drawn to older kids.  Many children her age, actually won't play with others at this stage- you will see them go up to a child and play 'next' to them, not really with them.  That can go on until they are 4-5.  If your daughter is seeking kids out to play 'with' instead of 'along side'- that is probably why she is drawn to older kids.  I would just let her navigate that and mature at her pace.  Sounds like she is doing great with interactions with others!

Hi, everyone I'm new here, my daughter was born December 2,2014 she started walking at 10months and is extremely active. I'm trying to get her to play with children her age but she's drawn to older kids. Any suggestions or just let her find her way?

Welcome! We had that 'transition pickiness' with a few of mine too- I always worried they would starve! Sometimes it helped to cut the milk back a bit or not offer it until after meal time, but most of the time, we just had to iron it out over time. Cutting teeth never seemed to help with the appetite either- and when that was done, it also helped.

Hi Gracie,
Good to see you here!

Hello everyone, it's been a while.  I started my LO on cereal around 2.5-3mos.  She kept staring at us eating and the bottle alone wasn't cutting it.  I knew she needed more.  She is not on step2 baby food.  I told the pediatrition when she had every stage 1 and he said go right on up to stage 2 to introduce more variety and give her more food and less formula.  It's been working out great.  She gets a bottle in the morning, fruit based food for lunch, a water/juice bottle in between lunch and dinner, which is a veggie based food and then a bottle before bed.  I change her once throughout the night, but she sleeps all night.  I also saw some of you talking about reflux.  My LO doesn't have it thank goodness but a very good friend of mine, her lo does and I looked it up.  Give them some cereal in the bottle and keep them upright for at least 15-20 minutes after the bottle.  It helps.

Hi there, i am from Estonia and my mom keeps pushing me to start my LO on solids, cause thats how she used to do and thats how things are done over there :) In the end you're the mom and will know whats best for your child.. Besides what Amber was saying about diabetes i've read that the longer the baby stays on breast milk/ formula only the stronger immune system they'll have and the will be less susceptible for ear infections and even allergies.. so i've made my decision to wait as long as i can ( until 6 months, if all goes well ) to start solids
But, not to sound like a broken record: it's something you need to decide.. Read the research it'll help :)
Have an amazing day :)

HI Judith,

When we were babies I know my mom did something similar to what you are describing- she did it around three months as well- we were all fine. :)  I think each culture and each generation have their ideas on how things work.  Science at times has even proven to be wrong, but sometimes it's accurate- problem is it's hard to know when it's right and when in 5 years it will tell you something different.  For myself personally- I never put an age on when I start solids, I try to study my baby and see how they are doing- do they seem to be satisfied after a feeding, are they growing?  If yes, then hold off on solids- if not, then maybe it's worth a try to see if they need the nutrition.  Some studies have shown that the longer you hold off the less at risk for diabetes and obesity your children will be as adults- that could be accurate, but studies can have errors or other factors could be involved as well.  Either way, you are the mom, so go with what you think is best!
