My daughter just turned 6 months and I'm nursing as well. If your baby is acting like she's still hungry, maybe you should nurse more. Not sure how often you're doing that, but you should probably nurse at least 5-6 times per day at 4 months if you're offering both breasts every time. If that doesn't work, you might want to consider talking to a lactation consultant because nursing should satisfy her at this point. Good luck though on introducing her to solids. It's going to be fun! :)

I wouldn't. A baby's primary source of nutrition should be from milk at 3 months old. Why not just wait until she's 4 months when she's had most of her vaccinations? Typically your pediatrician won't recommend introducing solids until 4-6 months. But then again, it all depends on your baby.
