My son is 2 months old yesterday and developmentally really advanced. He has been holding up his head since birth, laughing and smiling since 4 weeks, and supporting his weight (with help) on his legs for around two weeks, and he is sitting upright well with little help. We just went in for a check up and he has already almost doubled his birth weight.
My mother in law has been asking me when I am going to start giving him cereal for a few weeks now and every time I tell her not until 4 months, period but after doing some reading online I'm wondering if he won't be developmentally ready to try solids earlier (not yet obviously but perhaps three months old instead of four). On the other hand we have only in the past two or so weeks been able to get him on a feeding schedule that cuts down on his gas and allows for regular stools so I'm not sure if we shouldn't wait til he is a bit older (like six to eight months) to introduce them.
His pediatrician is very laid back on most all matters and so I'm not sure he would be much help in making this decision. Does anyone have any advice?
