I was just wondering if it's ok to start solids for a couple days and then stop giving them?? Seems ok to me, but just wanted some input from some more experienced ladies.
Here's the story...my lo is about 4 mos. 3 wks. and seemingly ready for solids. Also, I had been encouraged by just about everyone, including doctors, around me to go ahead and start her on rice cereal. So last week I started with a couple tsps. of rice cereal mixed with breastmilk. She did really well, you know actually swallowed most and kept grabbing for the spoon like she wanted more. The PROBLEM is that I then came on here and also visited some other breastfeeding websites like kellymom.com and saw to wait till 6 mos. So...I put the rice cereal away. I am just trying to do what's best for my dd and breastfeed for as long as possible!! Is this ok?? Help please!
***I should also mention that things are kind of upside down for us right now since hubby left for Iraq at the beginning of the month and we recently moved in with my parents. So, I am trying to keep things as stress-free and normal for her as possible. Just thinking maybe I should delay the solids till things calm down a bit???
