I'd wait a while. DD (now almost 4) wasn't interested in solids until she was close to 18 months old. She was super tiny like your son. Even at a year, she'd only eat a few bites of solids per meal....

nursing #1 was easy, and so far nursing #2 (11 weeks) is also easy. The main difference is that I'm more confident and relaxed. I bet things will be easy this time around for you too.
