my ds is 6 1/2 months now and showed early signs of interest in solids so we started him at about 5 months. i've been feeding him solids once a day and am wondering when i should increase the number of meals to twice a day...and then to 3 times a day.
(at our 6 months appt, pedi said he should be doing 3 meals a day already. am i behind?)
also, this may be a weird question to ask, but how do you keep lo from getting so messy? ds likes to grab the spoon and try to feed himself so the food can get all over the place...this is why i feed him in the evening, so that we can follow up with a bath not too long after. i know i can't give him a bath after every meal, so any advice on how to deal with the mess?
