Ok, Alex has been on solids since 4 months, he has 3 teeth and he sits up really good. The problem?? He wants REAL food!! He cries whenever he sees us eating, and tries to grab at everything. One of the books I was looking at said something about him being able to feed himself a cracker, but should I be giving him crackers?? I know it may seem silly, since I have a 3 year old, but I am so confused. Can I give him cheerios now? if not, then when?? I bought him one of those net food bag things, but what can I put in it?? Oh man, I feel like I have started all from scratch, my experience with my daughter was so different.
