Co-sleep with 2x sleep nurse
Wakes @ 6-7am

When he was ~6months it was more like this:
Nurse @ 7am
1 oz puree
2 oz bm from a bottle, drinks only 1oz
Nurse @ 12pm
1 oz puree
2 oz bm from a bottle, drinks only 1oz
Nurse @ 6pm
Long nap
Nurse @ 9pm
Nurse @ 11pm
Co-sleep with 3-4x sleep nurse
Wakes @ 6-7am
I am dealing with low supply now as well, barely pump enough to cover for when I am away. I do think that the bm is now thicker than before when all baby ate was bm.
I would have held off on solids until later except baby was not getting enough to eat, and he hated the bottle with a passion. When I make my purees, I use more protein and/or fat than typical. I'm in the camp who believes that babies can't process carbs well until older. I use these below:

1 avocado+1 banana+(bm to adjust consistency of puree)
ground beef (grassfed) cooked with carrots+butter (water to adjust consistency of puree)
chicken cooked with rice and onions+butter (use less rice, water to adjust consistency of puree)
pears cooked with coconut oil, mashed with a fork or pureed with water (I serve this half and half with high fat yogurt, usually Voskos)

I also started sneaking in a little cod liver oil in the pears+yogurt. Start with very little as they can tell!
