I started feeding my 5 month old rice cereal over the weekend. I wanted to wait until 6 months but he was waking up to nurse every 2 hours and never seemed satisfied!!
Anyway, here is the question - I work until 6:00 and get home each day at 6:30. Luca goes to bed around 8:30. Normally I nurse him when I get home, then give him a little milk to get him down to sleep. I was thinking of replacing the 6:30 feeding when I get home with rice cereal, then still nursing before bed. Would other mamas out there do this or should I keep both nursing sessions PLUS rice cereal?? I should also mention he takes a 7 oz bottle of breastmilk with his caregiver around 2:30 or 3:00pm each day.
Sorry this is a little long winded - this starting solids is a bit more confusing that I thought
Thanks for any advice!

PS Did anyone else feel sad giving the first bite of solid food? He has never had formula or anything so it was sad, his first food not from mommy!
