It is not too young, I started my son at 4 months and he loved it. If your 4 month old is showing interest in food when you eat it is a good sign they are ready.

I would definitly double check again with the doctor. I think if my doctor told me to wait, I would follow their advice. Also you can maybe get a second opinion from another Pedi if you really think that your baby is ready.
