    I'm still not feeding DS solids so I really don’t have any advise. I'm just trying to learn and watching your thread. I didn't realise that solids would INTERFERE with iron absorption from BM. I thought the whole purpose of introducing solids was to complement the iron

    After a year I started doing this, especially with lunch and dinner. However, when I get home from work some days he asks to nurse ASAP. I cannot deny him as it helps us reconnect after being apart all day, and it doesn't seem to interfere with his intake at dinner. In the morning though he gets booby first thing because mama is too lazy to make breakfast so early

    That's cute. He just wanted a little variety.

    Its also possible to just follow their cue. After a time, Haylee was hungry after an hour or so of nursing. Sometimes she just wanted "real" food, kwim? She was old enough at that point to tell me what she wanted.
    This is what I've been doing. We nurse the minute I walk in the door, then make dinner, eat and then nurse before bed. Just wondering if I should try to reverse it a little, but my gut's telling me we'll both know when that's necessary. Thanks Erin.

    Also, on the weekends I'm super lazy about solids...

    I was home today and got a chance to see her morning routine w/our DCP and she had chicken and apple sausage, oatmeal, toast and some water for breakfast (K-sized portions, which is not much), much more than my lazy butt does on a Saturday.
