Your son is 4 months old and weighs 20 pounds!!!???...WOW That IS BIG . My son is 3 and weighs 30. He should not be eating baby foods till hes about 6 months. I started with rice cereal before bed in the LAST ounce if his bottle at 3 months..helps them sleep a little better at night with a full tummy.. even then he was getting rash so i had to stop and try again like 2 weeks later. Then he did not get the red butt. Babies need formula/breastmilk fo develop properly. They need the iron to develop good. .. Id say try rice cereal at about 3-4 months just in the last OUNCE or two.. at about 6 months he'd have 4-6 oz and 1/2-1 container of veggies.. i started with green beans. Do all the veggies first SLOWLY then fruit. I would not do any mixes till you know all the others are gonna sit well... one kind a week... then switch to something new so if they have a reaction to the food you will know what it is. Cause if your doing em all you may not know what ones causeing the problem.(aka butt rash/the squirts..ect) . I hope this helps you.

My son started cereal at 2 months old and he is doing really good with it. He eats his cereal better than his bottles now. He is about 19.5lbs now. I am thinking about giving him a portion of vegies at lunch time now at 4 months old. When did you all start your children on baby food?
