I'm feeling a little lost on how and when to advance solid foods. My son is 4 1/2 months old and started oat cereal once per day a week ago. How fast do I advance to different foods and increase the frequency and amount of food?

Once a day will probably be all your baby will need for awhile. At first food is just for them to learn how to eat from a spoon and to get familiar with different textures. Food should not replace the milk....so if baby is decreasing in the amount of bottles then you need to decrease the amount of food. Doctors recommend not starting fruits and veggies until 6 months old.
