My ds is 6 months old. We started solids a few weeks ago. I had wanted to wait until after his 6 month birthday, but he just seemed so hungry! He weighs 14 lbs.
I am nursing him 9-11 times a day. This morning I gave him 1/2 cup of pureed barley and pears. He cried when it was gone. This afternoon I fed him about 2 tablespoons of avacado. In the evening, he ate a 2.5 ounce jar of sweet pototaoes mixed with 1 tablespoon of brown rice cereal. He cried when it was gone.
Should I be worried about his appetite for solids? It seems like a lot! Our doctor thought I should give him as much as he wants, as long as I am not cutting back on the nursing at all.
