Being a bigger weight doesn't necessarily mean they need more food. My son was 20lb at 4 months but I kept him exclusively bf until he was 6 months.

However, saying that - only you can know if you think your lo is ready for it. If you think his ready then it may well be that he is. Could you ask your hv?

I have just started weaning my little one at 5 months old. He was also showing all the signs. Do what you think is right, to be honest I don't see the harm in it with bland foods such as porridge, baby rice. I have been having issues with my little boy sleeping during the night, gave him baby rice yesterday and he slept 7pm-6am this morning!!!

If your not comfortable with the food, have you got him on hungry milk? xxx
