I didn't start Ben on solids until he was about 5.5 months, but even now, if we used jarred food frequently, I doubt he'd have more than 2 jars at a meal. He's still getting most of his nutrition from breastmilk at this point. I just followed his cues. He very obviously lets me know when he's still hungry (as in, he starts grunting and fussing until I shovel more food in his mouth) and when he's done (pushing the spoon away, not opening his mouth wide, getting very distracted) - and I trust his cues. But he probably started eating a little more around 7.5 to 8 months, maybe?

many thanks to trish for this cutest of siggies!
