Okay. DS will be 6 mo on Sat. Haven't started solids yet. I know that LLL doesn't recommend cereal as a first food, but I tried this recipe for baby cereal and now my DH and I have it almost every morning for breakfast and so it would be easy and convenient to just do that. I've been looking forward to starting solids and letting him self-feed soon, but now I'm just not sure if he's ready (or is it me who's not ready?).
He's been teething for months but has no teeth. He sits at the table with us and plays with his spoon and other toys. He doesn't yet sit unsupported, but sits pretty well in his chair. Are these things that you considered when making your decision? The ped was pushing solids / vitamin supplements at 4 months, and we didn't bite then. I'm not sure what type of reaction I'd get at the 6 mo visit if I told him that we're still EBF.
