He can feed himself fork mashed foods. Just take a banana and mash it up a bit and put it in front of him and let him go for it. Keep adding more foods to his diet. You don't have to wait a week like what was ones thought. Be careful of foods that can be a choking hazard and no honey or cow's (or any other mammal) milk until after 12 mo.
If you are breastfeeding use only one breast a feeding so he is getting the high fat hind milk that makes him feel full. The next feeding use the other breast. It's called finish the first breast first.
It's normal for children to wake (and nurse) at night until they are 3 or older.

http://www.kellymom.com/ is a good breastfeeding website and has info on starting solids. It may not have the most recent recommendations. The AAP is recommending babies and young children drink 4 oz of juice or less a day in a cup not a bottle or sippy cup.
There was a large study reviewing all the other studies on infant nutrition and starting solids. That study found that there was no evidence to support waiting a week between introducing foods and that almost all foods including peanuts could be introduced after 6 mo. Kids should drink water with meals and like everyone else water should be pretty much all they drink. Overweight and obesity has become a major problem in children and they are getting health problems that used to be found only in adults.
