don't worry about it

at this stage they still get the majority of their nutrients through milk (breast or formula)

you can feed him whenever you want .. at whatever times you want ... it won't matter if you miss feeds or days .. TBH you're just getting him used to taking food off a spoon and swallowing thicker than milk

Also as you're a month early (WHO recommendation is 6 months) then it won't matter at all
