this is depend on individual mummy style. I replace 1 milk session for my baby meal. initial stage you have to give solid first then top up with milk as they can't swallow well. it took my girl 2 weeks to totally give her 1 meal.

You can give the same amount of milk and give porridge in between milk feeds, around 1 hour after milk. If just starting out with solid it should just be a small amount of porridge (1-2 tablespoons)
