I do not think starting solids early is ever a good idea. A baby is not physically ready to properly digest solids until about 6 months old. Feeding solids earlier will just cause their digestive tract to slow down and the food will sit in there for awhile. Your baby will be less hungry because the food is sitting in their belly. It is best to just keep feeding your hungry breastmilk or formula in larger volumes until they are 6 months old.
