Re: How to start solids?
Well, you let him choose from what you offer him. In the beginning you pretty much have to decide what he's eating, but you do let him decide whether he wants to eat and if so, how much. The main difference is that you would be offering foods he can feed himself rather than cereals or purees that you would be spooning into his mouth. In that case, it is extra important that he be showing the signs of readiness prior to starting. Especially being able to pick things up himself, no tongue thrust reflex, and sitting up.
I loved it, it worked really well with my daughter and I hope to go that route this time with my son, but it doesn't work for every mom.
