Your child is going to need much more then that if he is around 6 months or so. Always breastfeed BEFORE offering any solids. Solids are not for nutritional purposes at this point and his main nutrients are to come from breastmilk / formula.

Breastmilk should remain the main source of nutrition until 12 months and a baby should still nurse at least 6 times a day until 12 months. Human milk is what babies need for brain growth and that's what's most important in the first year. Any food you give takes the place of perfect human milk. Many breastfed babies nurse 3-4 times just during the night up until 12 mo.
