Alfie is a few days off of 17 weeks old. So today I thought I'd give him a little taster of baby rice. He loved it! He was moving it round his mouth, pulling lots of faces and getting very excited when he swallowed it! Lots of kicking and gurgling. I thought I'd do this before his feed so he had a few spoonfuls and then had his usual bottle. Now I know it's early days and for the next few weeks it's getting use to tastes, but when do you drop a bottle and replace it with a meal? For example do you eventually replace his morning bottle and he has baby rice instead? Do I keep offering both? I know we are a very long way off this. He currently has about 5 7oz bottles a day (formula fed) and has no night feed (sleeps 9-9 and hasn't had/woke for a night feed since about 5/6 weeks old!) Any weaning advice would be appreciated.
