I haven't wrapped since 2 weeks, I started DD1 on solids at 6 months, have started DD2 on a tiny teaspoon of mashed avocado every 2 days - she is just 4 months and ready (unlike her sister at that age)
I don't like cereals or banana to start - blocks them up too much, so it's fruit (avocado and apple puree) and veg (sweet potato and pumpkin) to start :-)

What signs should I look for to see if she is ready for solids?

Nic, we are 4 months next week.
There are signs like, they show an interest in what your eating, their tongue movement changes. When they feed now their tongue pushes out to stimate the bottle or breast, when they are ready for food apparently it changes. They are screaming for milk... that's all I really know, sure the mums on #2 know better
Oh Nic we are up at 6.30-7 If you can, we go for a walk every day at 4-4.30 for an afternoon nap, I find if we miss that nap he is impossible to get down by 7. That is the only routine I follow from the save our sleep. None of the feeding routines and the nap times either...

Nic, we where the same going to bed at 9 asleep at 10 till I had enough, DH and I started fighting as Braydon was inconsolable. Looking back now I think he was over tired. My community nurse also recommended safe sleep space. or Rock a bub app is ok too,,,

Yea I think the same but DH keeps thinking we should keep her up cause else she will wake more at night....??
It's annoying me as I think she might benefit from the early bed as I find it impossible to settle her and keep her happy till 9...
Anyway tonight I have put her to bed @ 8 and she is screaming!! She was just protesting but now she is going mental, DH has gone to try and settle we will see what happens...
She is overtired as oy 1 x 45 nap since 2pm....
Wish us luck

We where scared of the same thing as he was sleeping 10-6. I started putting him down at 7. First night I woke him at 10 for dream feed, 2nd night woke him at 11 for dream feed, 3rd slept thru my alarm and he woke me at 3am for a feed, forgot to set it the next night and he slept thru, decided he would wake me when he is hungry and he has been sleeping thru.
We found it really scary but it is so worth it and you get your evenings back. I think up till 4 or 5 months the should be having 15-16 hours sleep a day.
