My little guy is 6 months old and we just started him on solids.
So far, just rice cereal and some peas. Here's my concern: I feel like I am not generating as much milk, even though I am vigorously pumping.
I usually mix breastmilk in with his cereal and I am just blowing through the supply if pumped bottles I am trying to keep up with in my fridge (I need 'em for daycare and travel). Here's my question: Can I simply mix his cereal with water? (He gets fed solids 3x a day and nursed 4xs a day).
I am also considering giving him water for hydration for the times that I give him solids and pumping during those times to build the required reserves in the fridge. I don't think I have enough to do both! Ugh.
