    I give him his solids 1.5 hour before his milk however he is 10 months.

    At your baby's age, it is always milk first and then solids to compliment the milk (unless it's solids specifically for reflux which would normally come first), maybe 1.5-2 hours later (ie. milk 1pm, solid 2:30pm, milk 4pm)

    Training cup, I started at 6 months

    we gave EJ his meals when we ate ours and gave him a sippy cup with water with his meals his feeds didnt land right on our meal times so he just had his feeds as normal and ate his meals with us

    ^^ that's what we are doing. He feeds as normal and I offer food when we eat.

    I moved the timings of my meals slightly to suit her better, (so when she would be awake! Except for evening meal, we didn't introduce that until she was actually eating the food around 8 months, and then that was not at the same time as us as we eat too late)
    I never found timing with bottles an issue, it seemed to have no impact on whether or not Ruby was interested in the food.

    I started with a Doidy cup at 6 months, which is an open cup. Never did trainer cup type things / sippy cups.
