I was going to wait until Liam was 6 months old before starting to spoon feed, like Reese was, but he just seemed ready earlier. For one thing, he's never been a talented breastfeeder. He gets distracted and un-latches all the time. For another thing, he bit be a couple times. So it's time to move on to bigger and better things. Also, he sits up pretty well, and that's supposed to be an indication that he's ready.
