My son is only 3 months, so I know it's early, but I like to plan ahead!
Everyone says that you're supposed to start solids ~6 months, but I've also read some breastfeeding moms say that their baby wasn't ready to start until much later.
What is this baby-led solids thing, and how does it work? What signs should I look for that he's ready? Any suggestions for a first food? I've heard avacados are good - very soft and healthy. Any other ideas? Should I try after he's nursed, or right before, or sometime in the middle, between nursings?
And does "no solids" for the first 6 months include cereals and other things mixed into breastmilk? For example, I like this "momcicle" idea for teething, where you freeze breastmilk (and maybe a little yogurt or fruit with it) and let him gum at it - should that just be breastmilk before 6 months?
