AT LEAST til 4 months. It is actually recommended that when you breastfeed to wait until 6 months to introduce solids. Right now at 3 months baby is going through yet another growth spurt. This too will even out and baby won't seem as hungry. Another thing to remember is that the breast can often be used for comfort making you think baby is hungry.

BTW Gaill food is for "practice" in the beginning. When people say this it means that food is NOT to replace breastmilk / formula but is used to help the child get use to ingesting food in such a way. Many people believe that when you INTRODUCE solids you are to take away a feeding (breastmilk/formula). The phrase "food for practice" is used to illustrate that the food is not going to be baby's main source of nutrition til at least year one.
