Re: BLS questions and daytime BF
I think you're right to be cautious about your LO's solid intake. Babies are all over the map when it comes to solids. Some of them will barely touch them, others can't get enough of them. With the latter type of baby, you want to make sure that the baby doesn't eat so much solid food that he starts to exclude breastmilk from his diet. You want to do what you're doing: proactively offer the breast at frequent intervals even if the baby doesn't demand, and always nurse immediately before offering solids so that the baby is mostly full of breastmilk. Since your baby is pushing you away, it might help to take him into a dim, quiet place (like a bedroom) when it's time to nurse. That can help cut down on distractions from the big busy world, and lead to better nursing sessions.
With soupy foods, you have to spoon-feed, allow baby to spoon-feed himself, or serve the food to baby in a cup. If you make lentils again, just take some out before they turn mushy and reserve those firmer ones for the baby. And if you prefer that baby not have salt, there's no harm in making his food low-sodium by keeping back a portion for the baby and not putting salt in it.
