Well my sons pediatrician is probably going to be upset with me when I tell him that I've started solids. My son is four months old and I've read a lot on the Internet about babies starting solids between 4 and 6 months but at the 2 month appointment for my son the doctor said not until 6 months. And the woman who does my WIC also told me not until 6 months and they don't start giving me baby food until he is six months. But anyway I think I'm the mom and I think he needs solids now. I started giving him solids because #1 He was eating WAY to many bottles daily. I went through 1 can of formula in 3 days!!! #2 I would occasionally let him have a tiny taste of my food and he got to the point where he'd scream and cry for more and I'd have to give him a bottle. Well since I've been giving him food he's consuming less formula! Still getting plenty though. He loves food too he opens his mouth for the spoon and he eats it instead of pushing it out with his tounge! So I think my LO is ready. I don't understand why I'd have to wait until 6 months because he's hungry NOW and he digests it just perfectly fine!
