Is this a sign to start on solids?

Ok. So twin A (5 month +) has been frequently feeding lately - he calms down after a lot of food - breast milk and then he needs more - so I have started supplementing with formula. I was giving him one supplement at night feeds. Now it seems that three supplements at night keep him asleep for 5 hours. Has anyone else had this issue? Do you think this is a sign that he needs solids? I would love to hear your experience!

I know that babies are different and typically we should start solids at 6 months, but this sudden change in appetite seems to point in that direction - thats just my instinct.

Yeah I had that same problem around 8 months, my daughter had already started solids. She was teething and started waking at night due to the discomfort of teething, I found the sooner I got to her and nursed her the quicker she went back to sleep.
