My son is nearly 10 weeks old and according to what the online advice sites has the skills acquired that he should have to begin feeding him at least oatmeal and fruit (holds his head on his own or with help, when on tummy can fully support himself on his arms with elbows fully extended and moves pureed food front to back with his tongue) but I don't know if this would be considered too early for him. My oldest son started about this time too b/c he was being breastfed and I wasn't producing enough to sustain him. I am not breastfeeding my 10 week old but he seems to get hungry too often from just the bottle (IMO). When did you start your baby on oatmeal and fruit?
