Hi I am a mom of 4months old boy.. As per doctor strictly upto 6 months we should do breastfeeding.. But I have got suggested by many moms to start solid food soon as my baby looks slim and have not put on good weight.. pls suggest wether I should listen to them or just quietly wait for another 2 months.. I m sooo confused and worried for my kid... pls help..

Answer:
ideally a baby should double the birth weight by 5 months. So if your son is nearing that, you should not worry. And wait till he is 6 months for weaning. Hope this helps.
