My LO is 5 months and 1 week old today, and with our ped and LC's blessing (encouragement, really) we've started introducing LO to solids. He LOVES food. I have no doubt that he's developmentally ready - he's showing all the signs, except that he can't quite sit fully unassisted yet. But he's close. Anyway, it's a loooong story, but I have a chronic low milk supply problem, so we've been giving DS one 4 - 6 oz. supplemental bottle at night when my supply is the lowest. We're hoping that we might be able to discontinue the evening bottle if solids are enough to supplement DS's diet. But my question is, which is better for supplementation at this age, formula or food? My instincts tell me anything has to be better than formula, but the formula manufacturers' marketing has successfully got me wondering if formula has more nourishment for my LO than, say, an avocado. I hope this isn't the case. What do you think? Thanks, mamas.
