Someone more knowledgeable than me is sure to reply, but in the meantime I have two thoughts for you :

1. Your milk supply is at its greatest in the very early morning hours, around 3-5 a.m. If you can wake him up for a feeding then, and if he will nurse for a little while, he would get a lot of milk from ya. Just a thought.

2. solids - regarding solids, NO he does NOT need to start solids now. Even formula fed babies generally speaking should not start solids until 6 months per AAP recommendations (used to 4-6 months, now it's 6 months). Your baby does NOT need solids and in fact, even when he does start them, they are a supplement, his primary nutrition will come from formula.

I'm continually frustrated that doctors have not updated their views on starting solids and its role in infant nutrition.
