I have asked the dr if i should start giving my 5 month old son the solid food from the stage 2 but not the meats yet. But if i should give him like the mixed fruit, and the gerber juice and sweet peas and green beans since some of the food is the same in the supported sitter jars. He does sit up fairly well for only being 5 months old, he does lean to touch his toes to keep balance but i am sure by the time he is about 5 months and 3 weeks old or little less he will be doing it without leaning as far forward.
She told me to wait on the juice because then he will just want that and not his formula, and we had a similar problem with our formula where he would stop taking it and only want his solids, so we had to take his lunch, and supper solids away and just give it to him at bed time with a bottle. But he doesn't seem happpier anymore, so my dr said try just morning with his foods and at bed time. But he is still hungry.
Do i start giving him the mixed fruit, and jucies or do u think i should hold off. I don't want to start meat yet cuz he is only going to be 5months and i would like to hold that off until closer to 6months. Nurse told me not to do stage 2 foods with him including juices until he is closer to 6months, but if i do stage 2 foods do little bits. I don't know what i should do, should i listen to the Dr and Nurse, or go with my gut and see what happens, if worse comes to worse i will stop the juice and go where we are now and what we are doing
What do I do?
