Re: Balancing Solids and BM with 7 month old
Once you start solids, you're on the road to reduced supply and complete weaning. But the road is usually a very long one! So I wouldn't worry too much. However, I think I might try to cut down a bit on the amount of solids your LO is eating by offering the breast more often. 5-7 nursing sessions per day is on the lower end for a 7.5 month-old baby- many babies are still nursing more like 8-10 times at that age. So I'd aim for at least 7 nursing sessions per day, and see if that changes anything.
How are you offering the solids? On a spoon, or are you letting baby self-feed?
