Re: Please Help! Starting Solids!!!
Congrats on deciding to make your own baby food! I thought starting solids was such a fun stage. This site is a great resource for homemade baby food info. There's a lot of info on making and introducing new foods.
Like other pp, we slowly worked up to three meals as DD got used to eating solids. I think in your situation, I would probably replace one of the cereal feeds with a fruit or veggie to start, and feed her as much or as little as she wants. Do the same food for 3-4 days before introducing another one so that you can look for reactions. We also did nursing right before eating, so her main nourishment was BM. At daycare, though, they fed solids in between bottles, since I was pumping the same number of times either way so it wouldn't affect supply and kept her happier.
