    Even if you have a snack sit him down and eat with him. If it is hard coordinating meals due to naps.

    Sounds like a great plan don't feel too pressured to start, 4 months is at the very earliest end of the spectrum for starting solids. I personally think 5-6 months is a good time. He'll give you a good sense of where he's at over the next month or 2!

    how does everyone else do it!?!
    @JR03 adorable! I'm not someone who deals well with mess but I may need to just let it go!
    I wouldn't stress too much about it - start with one meal a day and go from there. They don't need 3 square meals a day from the get go.

    OP - haven't read any replies yet so apologies if what I'm posting is duplicative.

    Whatever you do, don't anally subscribe to a particular theory. Go by bubs signs and feel free to mix and match approaches if that feels right. If a parent is blinded by a particular theory they could end up missing their bub telling them what they actually need.

    Whether it be you want to feed at 4 months, or bub must be 6 months to the day before starting solids. Be flexible.

    As for purées or finger foods/BLW... Why is it one or the other?

    One thing (food for thought) I will say is that bub will get to a certain point where a fair amount of solids is needed for both growth and sleeping long stretches. If solids is started particularly late with a bub (past 6 months) and then introduced slowly with a nibble here and a nibble there, it is possible that bub will get hungry and the length if sleep stretches at night will be impacted. Which in turn can greatly impact bubs temperament. And before you know it sleep habits may be formed that are hard to break.

    Good luck

Her speech is fantastic and I had an OT tell me it's most likely because of BLW.

    Cutie!

    I can confirm than non-BLW babies can be just as messy. I think kids are messy full stop!
