My lo is 6 months old. In about 5 months, my family is going to move overseas and I will be going back to work full-time. At that time, my baby girl will also get her own room (right now her crib is in our room). These are going to be a lot of changes, the major one being that dad will be the primary care giver while mom is at work (right now it's the opposite). I wanted to start weaning her so she is not attached to the breast anymore by the time we move so she does not have to deal with too much at once. We have started to introduce solids which is kind of slow going. She was really happy about sweet patato for the first 3 days but we tried regular potato mixed with breast milk which she hated (I tasted it and I don't blame her lol!). Now it's butternut squash and she seems to like the taste but she is not really eating much like she was with the sweet potato... long story longer ;-) I try to give her solids first and then breastfeed her but she gets upset and when I breastfeed her, she is not interested in the solids anymore except to put her hands in the bowl of food :-)... I was hoping that the introduction of solids would simplify the weaning because it's new and exciting but I really don't know how to go about it at all I guess. We tried re-introducing the bottle which she does not like too much at all.... Any suggestions?
Thank you so much!
