    Default Does this make me a terrible mom???

    Our 7 month old is eating brown rice cereal right now that I make for her.. however the last two nights I didn't make it....... Last night I fell asleep while nursing her and tonight she just nursed for 45 minutes and its bed time...
    Does this make me really bad that she doesn't always get her rice cereal every night??

    Don't even worry about it. No biggie. As long as she's still nursing she doesn't really need any solids anyways. At this age it's just for practice.

    Not at all. Our lo do not need food all the time. The food is to supplement not replace feedings. If she is nursing well then I would not worry about it and if anything give her the rice in the morning or in the afternoon... IMO.
    My dd2 is lucky if she gets 4oz of food and or cereal in a day...LOL

    Not at all! Nursing is much more important than eating solids. When Thomas started solids, there were lots of times that he didn't eat every night or on a set schedule. I think you're fine!
