My son is close to 5 months old and has been exclusively breast fed. I was considering giving him cereal sooner than 6 months because he seems to be hungry constantly. When he nurses he will only nurse for about 10 mins and then gets easily distracted, so I don't think he's getting full.
With my first son I did not give him cereal until he was 6 months, but he seemed to nurse better.
I hate the thought of him being hungry and was looking for the pros and cons of this, or your thoughts if you've been in the same situation.

I would skip cereal and if he can sit up, give avocado or baked sweet potatoes.
