My son is almost 6 months, he is EBF on demand (which is about every 2 hours) and weighs around 18.9 lbs. He looks and acts healthy and has plenty of dirty nappies.
I brought him to see the health-visitor to see if he's ready to be introduced to solids, and she said (based purely on his birth-weight and weight at 2 weeks)that he isn't gaining enough weight.
And blah blah blah. I don't speak rotten judgmental shrew, but the long and the short of it is the harpy thinks I'm starving the boy and he needs cereal.
I don't really want to give him cereal, we were planning on slowly introducing him to veg and fruit. I thought baby's got most of their nutrients from breast-milk. Should I be giving him cereal?
I wasn't concerned about his weight, he's in the 50-75%, but should I be?
