Re: 6 months and solids
At this age, solids should be something you do only for fun, because you are just beginning with them. A very small quantity- think a teaspoon or two of solids- once a day is enough. In a couple of months, you can ramp up to putting baby in his high-chair during family meals and allowing him to self-feed.
Until a year, breastmilk is capable of meeting all of a baby's nutritional needs. So until around that time, solids are just for fun with new tastes, textures, and motor skills. After a year, the transition from needing only mom's milk to needing a lot of solids is often a slow one, with many babies not eating a majority solids diet until well into their second year.
