Just give him a spoon and a dish to play with at mealtimes. EBF is still best as long as possible, and most kids don't really "eat" until a year or later. Sure, you can give them foods and they'll suck on them and practice chewing, but they don't really want to eat, they want to copy you. The more breast milk the better, don't rush solids when there's no nutritional reason.
