Hi. My DD is turning 1 tomorrow and is not that interested in solids. We started solids with her at 9m due to her not seeming ready before and a family hx of severe allergies. Overall, she is cubby and nurses well and is developing well.
Is it ok that she doesn't really want solids right now as long as I continue to nurse?
I saw this on kellymom.com:
* In the second year (12-23 months), 448 mL of breastmilk provides:
o 29% of energy requirements
o 43% of protein requirements
o 36% of calcium requirements
o 75% of vitamin A requirements
o 76% of folate requirements
o 94% of vitamin B12 requirements
o 60% of vitamin C requirements

She has always bf right from me so I don't know if 448 ml (~16 oz) is a lot or a little. I have heard that some babies are more prone to allergies and that they will refuse food for that reason. Should I worry about her not taking in many calories from solids? Also, do you have any suggestions on favorite finger foods?
By the way, she will eat cheerios and rice krispie type cereals but very very daintly (1 at a time- kind of like a princess lol). She will take food off of my finger if I prod but will often seal her mouth!
Thanks so much!
