I know its different for each baby, but I am in that gray zone of beginning solids right now with my babies. I have 7.5 mo old twins and they started solids around 6 months old.
Here is my question---
After you introduce solids, does the amount of BM a baby needs decrease? WHat does this look like---baby doesnt ask to nurse as many times or shorter time at the breast?
My babies show great interest in solid food. I am nursing about 5-7 times a day and 1-3 times a night (unfortunately!). They are getting solids twice a day right now. When I begin feeding them solid food, they seem to never want to stop. Of course, I want to feed them, but I am unsure how much to give them for fear that they will wean too soon.
AND--how do you feed them solids right after your nurse if they fall asleep right after you nurse??
I usually feed them when they wake from their naps...
Over time...will they just stop asking to nurse as they are full from other foods?
thanks for any experience or wisdom you can share!
