I wanted to get everyone's opinion. I took my son in to the pedi today b/c he still isn't over his congestion, fever, etc.... She is the best pedi I have found and I really like her on MOST issues. She is pro breastfeeding, but she is really pushing solids.
My husband and I tried bananas with him and he pushed it away. By the way, he just turned 6 months. He is in the 50% on his weight, so he is doing Great on just bm.
She told me today if I don't start him that he will get to were he will not want solids and he will not like any other textures other than liquid bm. I can see her point on that. But, then she went on to tell me that her child HATED solids and everytime he screamed she shoved the spoon of solids in his mouth. Well in my opinion....Aren't you making a bad situation worse?
I see her point on him getting "spoiled" to only his favorite Mommy Milk, but he refused bananas when we tried so why force it???? Other thing is she wants us to start rice ceral. Everything I have read said bananas are best to start on for bf babies.
Please give my hubby and I some of your experiences and opinions...Thank You
