Re: Solids and bfing

I'm letting DD self wean. Before 1 year, I have never specifically offered solids before or after nursing... we just nursed on demand and she was offered solids whenever I was eating. Whether those meal times happened to be before or just after a nursing, it didn't matter, she sat on my lap or in her high chair and was offered food. But then again she wasn't really a huge fan of solids so it was never an issue of her filling up on solids before getting the nutrition of breast milk.

Once she was around 15-18 months, I started to offer her a snack during the day when she wanted to nurse. We still do this at 20 months. If she turns down the snack, we nurse.
