my daughter is 18 weeks and milk is not enough for her either. I started to give her some baby rice mixed with her normal milk, this way it tastes pretty much the same. I started this at 14 weeks as she was ready for it. It didnt take long for her to get used to taking it off a spoon, but you may find putting a bit on your finger might help to start with. Also have it quite runny and dont be put off by the funny faces and gagging!! Choose a time when baby is relaxed and not tired and cover everything up!!it is messy! I found lunch time to be best but whatever works for you, and you might have to experiment with what milk you give. I give my little girl half her normal milk, then the rice, then offer the rest of the milk if she needs to top up! She has banana mashed up in it aswell now and she loves it!! it has helped her not be so hungry.
