Is Three Months Old Too Early to Begin Cereal, and Gerber 1St Foods?

My son is 3 months old, and it has seemed that the usual 6 oz every 3-4 hours isn't satisfying him anymore...he constantly seems hungry,,he has even at times taken 8 oz of formula. He can sit up with support, and his head is still a little "wobbly", He has shown an interest in the families dinner time, and is always "gnawing" on his fists and fingers! What do you think? If he is ready,,,what is the best way to start, (i.e. what to feed him first, how long,,when to introduce gerber 1st foods?) Thanks

12 Mo Old "Underweight"

Hello everyone! We took our 12 mo old to her 1 year check up and said they were concerned about her weight. That her height was fine but her weight was in the 15th percentile. I am a SAH mom and I have only breastfed her and still am breastfeeding. I just don't know what I am doing wrong. I told them I would let her nurse whenever she wanted to. They told me not to do that and set up more scheduled meals. I am doing that now and she was doing GREAT but now is beening a VERY picky eater. Usally for breakfast I give her cheerios or some sort...
