When i got mine this year he was about 10weeks and my first PD. I know much much younger than yours but he was already eating solids on his own but i wanted to hand feed him as it helps with bonding. So i fed him baby food warmed up a little in a small syringe. I mixed fruits and veggies together. Carrots of course and any fruit that i thought he would like. he loved it, and the other day i found an unoped jar of mixed veggie baby so i thought i would see if he would still eat it. As he eats just about anything you put in front of him he ate a couple spoon fulls and he is somewhere around 6months old now. So i would say give it a try. I think it helped in my bond with murphy.
