my boy will be 7 months next week. he is exclusively breastfed--no cereal, no finger foods, no anything. he has been consistently > the 90th percentile for growth, both weight and height; he was born 9 lbs 8 oz and is now about 21 lbs, active, crawling, talking, and happy. and not sleeping through the night... we cosleep and it has been a wonderful relationship. i have read so much about pros and cons: allergy development, diabetes, celiac's disease, iron requirements, etc, but still feel strongly that exclusive breastfeeding is not just adequate but optimal. any thoughts? i like to hear other moms' reassurance and feedback and experience, as this is still my first babe and all the info available can lead to insecurities. feel free to email me as well. thanks!
