Re: When did you start solids?
I went back to work when DD was 4 months. She refused, flat-out, to take a bottle of the nice boob milk I pumped, so my caregiver suggested boobie milk mixed with cereal, with applesauce, etc. She ate all and was happy and all was well.
But she was obviously ready, too -- no tongue-thrust reflex, willing to try solids, etc.
Now at 9+ months she is still a champion nurser, but eats a large variety of solid foods (and she has 7 teeth, so she gets a real range!). I enjoy the fact that we can have fun culinary adventures, but still enjoy plenty lovely nursing time together.
Every baby is different.
