I am uncertain as to how much and how often I should be feeding my 7.5-month-old daughter solid foods and breast milk. We introduced solids around 4.5 months, and she eats very well. Right now, she is nursing five times per day and eating two four-ounce feedings of solids (lunch and dinner). She is cutting back on the length of her nursing sessions. Does this mean she is getting ready to drop a nursing session, or should I decrease her solids?
I'm not sure what is a good balance at this age between breast milk and solids. My first daughter was underweight--we fed her as much as she would eat to increase her weight--so, I am not sure how much an average-sized baby should be eating.
I know each child is different, but any advice as to an approximate schedule for solids/breast milk would be appreaciated!
