    Default stop solids?

    Ok, I'm so conflicted...can I stop cereal if I've been feeding once a day (2tbsp) and go back to EBF? Benefits? Downside? LO is 5 mos and I thought I was fine with starting this young, but have been thinking today that maybe I'm not.

    If you've only been doing 2 tbl of cereal, I think that you can definitely go back to EBF with ease. Solids in the first year are only for experimentation with new tastes and textures and new oral motor skills- babies don't need solid food until they're over (sometimes well over) 1 year of age.

    You can definately go back to just BF.. I did it SEVERAL times. My dd had alot of issues with solids so bascially we would try solids for a few days and she would have issues and then we would go back to EBF for a month or so and try again. We did that several times.
