I feel my DS is ready for solids because he shows all the signs that he is ready. With our pedi's go-ahead, we plan on starting soon. However, I'm confused about when to offer solids. I fully intend to nurse DS as long as he'll let me, so I definitely want to do this gradually. DS is nursed on demand; we don't have a schedule at all. When he's hungry, he gets fed. How do I fit solids into this type of schedule? How do I fit pumping for cereal into this type of schedule? I really want to use freshly pumped milk for cereal if possible instead of stored milk or formula.
