Hi. I have a 5mos old son. He started eating solids when he was turning 4mos. I didnt give him anything at first till I went to my GP and was told it was okay, just as long as he wants some. Anyways, I'm just wondering how much is too much coz I feed him a small bowl of fruits and veggies for lunch and dinna but he wants more. And he's supposed to be rolling on his back and vise versa and he's still isnt. I'm just a bit worried. Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks

give him as much as he will take some babies eat the whole jar at this age and more. if he is still opening his mouth he is still hungry. dont stress about milestones all babies do things in their own time. just wait and see how he goes. my daughter started sitting up by herself and commando crawling at 11 and a half months and now she is 14 months and only just started pulling herself up to the couches. she still cant stand up in the cot or pull herself up with the cot bars so i wouldn't worry
