Re: General Feeding questions/issues for 7 month old
Until around a year, breastmilk or formula meet all a baby's nutritional needs. Solids should be reserved for fun with new tastes, textures, and motor skills. They should not be used to replace breastmilk or formula in the baby's diet- merely to complement it.
The reason WIC gives so much solid food is a mystery to me, and it's not an indication that you need to use it. I think a lot of people do because so few people make it into the second 6 months with breastfeeding, and because formula is so expensive. A lot of people are really forcing the transition to solid foods to happen much faster than it should. But there's no need for you to be one of them!
