for any other food, you should have waited till 6 months. You should maximum offer him three solid feeds and keep enough gap between his feeds, so that the child takes milk feed too. You should also avoid giving top feed with bottle as it creates nipple confusion. This could also be the reason, your child is refusing your feed. You should use sipper or spoon to give top feed.
