Post subject: BIG boy baby milk
Our son is 4 months on Feb 23rd and he is 22 lbs and he drinks 6-8 oz per feeding sometimes 3-6oz. My question is, If the average 6 month old baby is 16 lbs and my son is 22 lbs, should i start feeding him rice cereal 2-3x per day to help with his hunger?

if he's satisfied with just the milk and is still sleeping through the night (if he does sleep through the night) I'd say hold off until closer to 6 months Smile

My son is a big boy (9lb 9oz at birth). He has 8oz 4/5 times a day and we only started weaning him at around 21/22 weeks old. I wouldn't say because babies are big that they need to be weaned extremely early, just when they are showing the usual signs of needing something extra x

He is a little more of a mama's boy now and sometimes I'm the only one that can soothe a hurt or put him to sleep. I doubt this has anything to do with ending breastfeeding, but more to do with just general mom/baby bonding.

I weaned Lola very young, a similar age actually and i dont regret it. She didnt enjoy milk and was the complete opposite, she stopped milk for good at 9 months and wont touch it now!
I think you should try it, i dont like following rules and things because every baby is different xx
