I was reading Dr. Newman's face book page, and looked at his info on solids. He makes a few statements, like that nursing 4x per day along with a variety of foods is probably fine and that baby should not be limited to 1 tsp and should be able to eat whatever amount they want of solids. This is 6 months and up, my baby is 8 months.
This seems to be in great contradiction to all the advice I commonly see here. Thoughts? For example, last night my baby was wolfing down the solids, and I stopped because she hadn't nursed and she is super distractable. She clearly wanted more food but had refused to nurse. What should I have done? I did not give her more food, but his advice makes it sounds like I shouldn't limit her. Sometimes I feel like he underestimates distractability among other issues...any thoughts? Thanks
We are doing 100% BLS by the way, she refuses spoons.
