My son Noah is days away from turning 6 months old, and up until this point he has been fed only through EP without any solids or formula. My pediatrician practically ordered me at his 4 month well-baby to start solids in the next two months, but I've heard it's possible to wait a little longer so that baby can start out by self-feeding.
Has anyone else let their baby try this out, and if so, how does it work? I'm desperate for information on this, because everywhere I look people seem to think the only option is forcing purees into unwilling mouths until they get the hang of it. I'd like to wait until he's ready to start eating, but I don't even know how to recognize that.
