So we went to the doctor for Mr Man's 4 month checkup. He weighs 18.6 lbs and is 25 3/4" long. She gave us the go ahead to start him on some solids - 1 meal a day to start. If he really likes it and does well we could go to 2 meals a day. So far he's had some rice cereal, some bananas and some peas.
He's pretty good about eating - takes about halfway through the meal before he really sort of gets the hang of the spoon. He takes about a tablespoon or so and then he has some mommy-milk.
Supposedly adding these solids as an evening meal are going to fill him up more and sleep longer. So far...nadda! Mommy is really hoping that after a few weeks he can sleep longer than 2-3 hour stretches. I'm tired!!
He's definitely started the teething process - though it could be weeks/month+ before we see any. Until then...poor fussy Mr Man. And tired mommy.
