    Default Breastmilk before, after or not at all????

    I just started my lo on solids yesterday. We are skipping the rice, but we are trying oatmeal before we move on to the fun stuff like fruits and veggies. Its my DH's fav so we fig we'd introduce her to that first. I dont measure anything out i sort of eye-ball the amount until its at a consistency that I see fit. I mostly bottle feed my lo with EBM. So is what I am doing right????

    I make a bottle as usual - 5 oz, then I pour from that to make the oatmeal. Then after she finishes the oatmeal I give her what is left in the bottle, about 3.5 oz or so...am I doing it in the right order??? The oatmeal is not supposed to replace a bm feeding correct??? just making sure I got it!!!

    TIA
