Re: how to juggle solids, breastfeeding and naps?
Ok, my son was always spitting up and even throwing up until about 4 months: I have low supply and I was probably overfeeding him with a formula supplement via sns... I researched the reflux like symptoms and then started nursing in more upright positions instead of across my body: he is almost 7 months old and between positioning better and his age the vomit and spit-up is super rare and since he was 5 months, I have only supplemented him with donated breastmilk. I currently feed him about 9 times a day....an early morning feeding 4-6 am ( we cosleep after his midnight-2am feeding) a 9 am-ish feeding, a 11 am feeding, a 1:30 ish feeding, 3-4 pm feeding, 5-6 pm feeding a 8-9 pm feeding and a midnight feeding and often I 'll throw in some quick nursing to send him off to sleep before a nap or if he has gas throughout the night. I just started trying out solids in the last 2 weeks, he isn't too excited about eating but he likes tasting now... I'm not too concerned that he isn't getting enough solids since they aren't as important as all the breastmilk.

Hope things work out well...
