    Default DS8months Loves FOOD

    My daughter will eat just about anything...and I can sure tell when meal time is coming. I can set my alarm clock on her eating schedules... when supper time is coming, you can tell!! As soon as she gets in her high chair she gets so excited! She actually eats whatever we are eating...and double fists it to her mouth! I pretty much skipped baby foods...

    She still loves to nurse though... Should I encourage nursing before she eats, so, I don't lose my supply?

    Yes, encourage nursing before she eats. She needs breastmilk to be her primary source of nutrition throughout the entire first year; solids should be a little extra on top, not a replacement of milk feeds until she is 12 mo.

    My daughter was always like that as well - still is.

    I still nursed all the time though. I usually kept on an every 2 hour/1 & 1/2 hour "schedule"(this was determined by her, not me) of nursing and she would eat solids in between.
