Re: Feeding Schedule for almost 12 month old
Congrats on nearly getting to that first birthday!!!
Your baby's nursing frequency seems very typical for a nearly year-old baby. If I were you, I would keep things more or less as they are until your baby reaches a year. At that point, you can definitely drop some pumping sessions and replace them with whole dairy products, if you're feeling done with pumping. With respect to solids, you can begin offering "real" food any time you feel ready. Many moms skip purees altogether, and just let their kids self-feed from the beginning. You can just offer table foods- cut them into non-choking-hazard sizes and let your LO dig in! You might want to check out the introducing solids forum for good suggestions on solids for the beginning self-feeder.
