My son is 6 months old today. We started giving him a little cereal at 4 months or so, and we've slowly increased how much we give him. Now he eats pureed baby food really well, he's like everything he's tried so far! But I was wondering, when do you typically start increasing the amount of solids they eat per feeding and decreasing breastmilk/formula? Right now, he's still mainly breastfed. I usually feed him 2 "meals" of solids a day, morning and afternoon. He seems like he can eat a lot- in the morning usually a couple tbs of oatmeal with a tbs or two of fruit, and in the afternoon usually 2-3 oz of a veggi. On top of nursing him. But I have no idea when its "ok" to start decreasing the amount of milk and increasing solids more. Any help?
