5 month old to start on food

My son is sometimes having 11, or more ounces at a time. Should I start him on solids? Should I still let him drink what he wants first, then try some food? Advice would be great!

Why are you letting him consume so many ounces at once? No baby's stomach is big enough to take in that much unless it's been stretched out by continuous overfeeding... Smaller amounts more often would probably be a better way to go.

Solids really shouldn't be started under 6 months and then yes... they have their milk before they get the food.
