Re: Feeling pressure? about feeding solids
My son is 9 months and he loves eating and feeding himself. He could eat solids all day if I let him. Had my mom babysit for 2 hours while my husband and I went out for our anniversary and she spent the whole time feeding my son. He was so full when I got home he wouldn't nurse and he passed right out. I was so frustrated. I have cut back on solids since for fear of weaning. When I give solids its 2 times a day no more than 2 oz at a time and its always after I nurse and then I nurse right after to wash out his mouth and see if he is hungry still. Always bookended your solids feedings with nursing to check that your solid intake is a good amount. This helped me determine what amount was ok for my son. Be really specific with any caregivers about food, too... as others will point out, solids aren't that important at this point, just make sure what she does get is the best quality,whole foods.
