Introducing your baby to solid foods is an exciting time. In today's Health Minute, Holly Firfer talks to an expert who fills parents in on what to do and what to expect. First-time mom, Becky Pittman is introducing her four-month-old twins to solid food. "They'll eat a little bit, they'll spit a little bit out and most of it ends up on the bib," says Pittman. Solids are usually introduced when babies are four-to-sis-months-old. "Before four months, you run the risk of getting allergies and foods can be a choking hazard. If you wait much longer than seven or eight months then babies get really used to full liquid diet and may have a harder time adjusting to thicker textures," says Dr. Jennifer Shu, a pediatrician. Doctors used to recommend  a very rigid order for the introduction of foods, but that's no longer the case. Now, they usually suggest parents offer their baby cereal, fruits, vegetables or meats in whichever order they choose. Sometimes children have a bad reaction to what they eat, so wait a few days between the introduction of each new food. "When starting solids, it can be helpful to start the new food in the morning, that way a parent can watch a child for reactions during the day while the parent's still awake. You might expect reactions, such as a skin rash or hives, vomiting, or diarrhea, if a child, um, has a food that does not agree with him," says Dr. Shu. Pittman says so far, the twins are doing fine. Next up? "I think we're going to try a vegetable. Probably green beans or peas, something green," she said.
