I too was confused about when to start solids. My nurse didnt explain to me that it was when there milk feeds didnt satisfy them anymore. My 5 and a half month is still satisfied with his milk feeds of 200- 240 mls every 4 hours. I have only just started to introduce rice cereal to get him used to solids. They say milk is still the most important food up untill 12 months. By this they mean when they can drink a full bottle and they dont settle after that. I hope Im doing it the right way. Maybe there is no wrong or right way because everyone has their own way of judging when the time is right.
