I'm the opposite - Adam gets two jars a day for lunch and dinner, otherwise my little giant would drink insance amounts of formula and waking up every three hours at night. Once I strated solids, the boy finally dropped to one late night feeding and one 5am-ish feeding
We started at 5 months, because the silly girl was lunging at our food and smacking her lips anytime we'd eat. It took her 2 days to figure out the spoon, and there's been no turning back. So far, she's only been eating about 2-3oz of fruit in the morning, mixed with oatmeal and 2-3oz of veggie in the evening. She still takes about 5 bottles a day, and pretty much sleeps through the night.
I did little bites and tastes after 4 months. We started on a daily basis last week when I started watching a little boy who's 10 months. If it weren't for him I'd still probably be pretty lazy about it.
Norah really wants to eat. She grabs at our food and does the lip smacking too. But I've only let her taste a few things. So far she's tried avocado, banana, applesauce, vegan chocolate (from my scone), quinoa, brown rice, and sucked on a bit of carrot. I'm not ready for her to be eating much yet even if she is. I'm overly concerned about food allergies since she's so sensitive to milk.
