it's been awhile since i've posted since things have been going pretty well w/ the BF and working situation. (FYI: she turns 6 months at the end of this month) the only thing is lately, my LO has been very distracted during BF and i wonder if she's eating the same amt. since she doesn't eat as long or as "thoroughly". she seems content despite her being distracted but is this a phase at this age? i try to get her to eat for at least 15 min/ side. she does the whole, suck, stare, turn away, and back to sucking routine. it's kinda funny but i wonder when to stop or know she's done if she apparently isn't giving me the cues since she's distracted.
we're also going to start her on solids in a week and i'm freaked out about that since it's been so easy to feed her w/ EBF. do u think it's also okay to start trying to give her water since it's so dang hot where i'm at and would like to add fluids for her??
Thanx for any input u can give...
