So we went to the pediatrician for Wyatt's 4 month check up and were told that we "could" start solids when we want to but that they tell their BF patients closer to 6 months is great.
I told my family this and now they are all over me to start solids (DH also). I had a 30 min argument with my sister about why I had not started yet. I have prob said 30 times in the last two weeks to various people that the AAP and the WHO say 6 months of exclusive BF.
I keep telling them that I will decide when the time is right for us. I have told DH that I want to wait and given him some resources to read so that he will see where I am coming from when making my decision. I am not going into this whole parenting experiment half cocked. I have done research on all the big decisions that we have had to make and I am doing the same with starting solids.
And no I dont read to much like everyone thinks. Informed consent and informed decision making is how I choose to parent.
Sorry for the vent
