Re: Exclusive Breastfeeding for a year
I'd estimate my daughter's nutrition consists of >95% breastmilk and <5% non breastmilk. She's 10.5 months, nursed by me, fed my expressed milk by our nanny while I'm at work. We don't make a plan when it comes to food. Sometimes I'm cooking, she's watching me from the high chair a little fussy (but not hungry) and ill give her an organic carrot stick. She gnaws it - probably nice for teething. She has also tried avocado, a slice of steamed sweet potato and butternut squash, a slice of peeled apple,a hunk of banana. No significant intake of any of the above. It's basically an exploration for her. That said we are huge vitamix users and make a whole fruit / vegetable smoothie every day. She prob tastes that more than anything, though not daily, and is getting spinach, kale,berries, raw seeds or nuts,coconut, squash, dates - whatever made it in. No reactions, no tummy issues either. But in the end, this kid is getting a lot of mommy milk.
