Questions about introducing solids...

I was reading a few threads, and I forget which momma was talking about the requirements/milestones that the baby needs to accomplish before it's okay to starts solids. I've heard about the sitting up unassisited because of proper muscle/intestinal development- but I'd never heard of the open gut thing... Do you have a reference where I can read up about that?

My son is almost 4 months- but I don't have any desire to start regular food until he's 6 months old- later if I can. He is EBF right now, but he does sleep 9hrs a night- sometimes waking at 4am to eat, sometimes I feed him while he's asleep at 4am (just because I like to go to the gym)... I worry about him regressing if he starts to get too hungry... am I insane? Does the caloric content of BM change as he gets older?? He's a big guy- like 18lbs right now, and whenever he is given a bottle, he still only drinks about 4oz of it... maybe he sucks more out of me and I don't know it, but when he takes a bottle it's always the same (and he was doing that at 2 months old)?!?!?

I have a food list from my Naturopathic doctor about which foods to introduce first because of nutrient content that babies need, so I think I will follow that, along with the Super Baby food book stuff- I like their cereal recipe.

Any other suggestions?
