My DS is 4.5 months old, 18 lbs and 26 inches... big boy.. anyway, we started him on solids at 4m. He is sitting up in a highchair, grabbing at our food, and watching us eat like he wants to try. I was SO reluctant... I wanted him to go to about 8m before introducing, but with his size, boobie milk just was'nt satisfying his desire for food. I asked his pedi at his 4m appointment and she told me that I should start immediately because of his size and strength (he is already pulling himself across the floor..)

I was SOOO sad the first time ... he just LOVED it so much... ate like a big boy, doesn't spit any out, kept clamoring for more. Now he tries to feed himself with the spoon... ughh.
