Quoting Hikaru Katsu:" he doesnt have reflux, he only throws up when he eats too much. but a lot of the times he insists on ... [snip!] ... a bit but he wont take them. i've tried giving him apple slices to chew on and it almost looks like he was trying to eat it. "


So let him eat 8oz, and then give him something to chew on but nothing that is big enough that he could choke or swallow it. Entertain him. Get his mind off of food. He really doesn't need solids at this age. It's not good for his little tummy.

Quoting ⚓ Sarah ⚓:" some babies are ready earlier than 6 months. You can skip cereal though and just do purees."

This. DD started solids at 4 months and was perfectly fine with it. Her pediatrician was very happy about it especially seems it helped with her constant constipation from her lactose intolerance. Some babies are ready earlier than others and you can't put every baby into a cookie cutter mold.

If he throws up from eating too much, why is giving him food early, the answer?

My baby went through a stage like what you're describing where he wanted to eat every few hours so I just cut back on the amount he ate since he was hungry earlier. Instead of an 8oz bottle every 2-3 hours I gave him 5oz and eventually he went back to eating every 4-5 hours, a 6oz bottle.
