Hello... my baby is 3months 10 days old. she is completely on formula... today I had a pead. visit. she advised me to start semi-solid like rice pez .I can't put her only on formula for 6 months. anyone else has started semi solid at this stage?

its not advisable to start semisolids at 3rd month..baby's git is still not developed..u can wait at least 2 more months

In Kerala, still people start semi solids after 3 months. Maybe you could get advice from experts in Baby Chakra

It will depend on the baby's weight gain. Just to give you a general idea - formula tends to cause faster weight gain and hence is not recommended for long durations. However if the baby's weight gain is on track and in the normal range then you should not start solids till about six months of age as solids are not complete meals as individual foods however formula is a complete meal.
