Daniel is 4 months old. At his 4 month visit the ped said I could try solids with him. I had intended on exclusively BFing until 6 months. However, a few things are making me reconsider.
Daniel has never really "enjoyed" nursing. He nurses just enough to not be hungry anymore. He refuses to comfort nurse and has somehow become a snacker. He is always active. He's already scooting himself on all-fours and is rolling front to back. He was 7 lbs 3 oz at birth, and dropped to 7 lbs at his lowest. At his 4 month visit he was 13 lbs. I worry about his weight gain, but I think he just burns all his fat with his active nature. I know he has no trouble with growth as he is off the charts at almost 27 inches.
My concern is that growth starts to slow around 4-6 months, and my DS cannot afford to get any skinnier. But I'm thinking, the reason for the growth decline at 4-6 months is due to the increase in activity. Daniel has always been active, so perhaps he will maintain this steady growth pattern?
I am considering giving him some avacado as his first foods around 5 months. Am I going to harm him in some way by doing that?
