Re: Sad about approaching 6 months/solid
I am in the same place right now. My DS will be 6 months really soon (end of next week), and I have been freaking out about it. I also see it as the beginning of the end of BFing, which makes me so sad. Another part of me is excited to see him experience foods, but I just don't feel ready yet!
I was just telling this to another BFing mom at daycare yesterday. Her son is two weeks younger than mine, but they started solids at 5 months. She didn't understand why I am uneasy about it. It kind of made me feel silly for being sad, so I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who feels this way!
