i've just barely started introducing solids to my 6 month old dd.. so far banana, avocado and sweet potatoes.... she eats it.. doesn't spit even a bit out.. but i've only offered a few times and only once a day.. she eats about a tablespoon each time. i nurse her before and after just incase, cause i never know when she is done nursing. she has always been a frequent nurser for short bouts. i was wondering when i should start offering more than once a day? and i'm concerned about her getting constipated.. is the key a variety of foods?? also.. i havent bought any of the purees yet, just mashed up my own.. i'm not doing the child-led pieces she can feed to herself cause when i tried w/banana, she gagged up a huge hunk of it and scarred the crap out of me. has anyone had their lo's self wean early or nurse less due to solids??
