Re: So far solids not going so well.....
Until year, offer right after nursing. Your goal is to keep solids from interfering with breast milk intake.
Are you thinking that your baby isn't eating enough solids? A teaspoon-full per day, maybe a few teaspoon-fulls, is really all you want a 6 month-old to be eating- again, you want the baby's diet to be nearly 100% breastmilk, with solids just for fun with new tastes, textures, and motor skills. Breastmilk alone meets all baby's nutritional needs until somewhere around the first birthday. So if she eats some solids, great! If she tastes some and then spits them out, still great! And if she refuses to eat and just explores the solids with her fingers, still great.
