Answer:
Firstly every child is different and every child grows at his/her own pace. On an average baby doubles his birth weight by 6 months. If that is there in your baby's case then all is fine. Regarding foods, solid feeds at this age, should not replace Breast milk feeds or other milk feeds and it should still continue to be the main food for your baby. Your baby should be taking mainly milk feeds (5-6times in a day) and only 1-2 solid feeds Regarding the foods to start with, start with single foods first like, Rice cereal, apple puree and offer only 1-2 tsp and that too 1-2 times in a day.
