My son is 6 months old and I started baby food pretty soon after he turned 4 months because my doc said I can go ahead and start. Well all my relatives and friends who nursed their children said that when they start eating baby food they will nurse less often... My son is still nursing every 3 hours even through the night. I don't know if this is normal or not but he is also only eating about half a container of gerber 1st foods and only 1/3 of 2nd foods. I nurse him before I feed him baby food because I was told to do that and I feed him baby food 3 times a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner) Am I doing this right? is it normal for my baby to be nursing this often at 6 months and not eating the whole container of baby food?
