  1. When is the right time to start baby food? My baby is a bit over 3 months but is just about sitting up by himself but in bumbo chair he has no problem sitting up and he does get when he doesn’t want his pacifier he pushes it out or keep you from giving it to him. If u could help me that would be great.
