We plan to start LO on his first solids Friday, he will be 5 months old. I am going to start with Organic Rice cereal, and mostly let him piddle around with it for the first two weeks, so that he is closer to six months when we really start aiming for a "meal". (I think LO is ready, he shows a lot of interest in adult food, and is eating larger quantities of milk before bed, almost double his old feedings (by bottle at bedtime) for about three or four weeks.)I plan on starting at dinner time, when supply is lower, and also to try and establish this as a meal time. My question is since BM is still supposed to be the main source of nutrition, how do you gradually reduce nursing sessions? I have had OS, so I really want to try and make a point to introduce a meal time without nursing at some point, so that I can gradually wean little one. I thought maybe eventually he could have a little juice with evening meal instead of milk? My goal is for him to no longer be nursing, (or just a couple of times a day) between 10-12 months. My DH doesn't even want me nursing that long.
Any ideas on how to gradually reduce nursing sessions through out the process?
