Re: soilds at 5months??
I started my LO on rice cereal when she was 4.5 months. We just went really slow, she is sooo into food. I would just say that as long as LO is still nursing as much as before, they are fine. Mine is almost 6 mo. already and still only gets some rice cereal mixed with a fruit or veggie in the morning. She nurses NO LESS than before.... even though that might be nice (she still nurses every 2 hours!!) I used to pump and mix with rice, but she actually likes it better mixed with water, I think mixed with BM confuses her!! Feeding solids is pretty much just for fun right now, she prefers the booby to anything!!!
