    Hi ,
    Solids and other foods can be introduced one food at a time for a week after the baby is 6 months old.
    Upto 6months exclusive BF is the best for babies.
    Pooping 4 times a day is normal.
    I gave oatmeal to my DS when he was 9 months old.

    Hi
    About giving oatmeal you should check with your ped as some babies are allergic to gluten... usually they advice oatmeals after the baby completes 1 year ...
