I would go with what your baby is trying to tell you, if he is happy to take the cereal and still has his milk feeds then that is great, just follow his lead. There might be days when he doesnt want that much. They always say that food is for fun the first year so his main food is still milk but keep trying him with the foods.

I followed the pediatrician's advice to feed breastmilk only for the first 6 months. I know others who have provided solid foods earlier as they felt the babies just weren't getting satisfied and it seems to be OK.
