Re: I don't get EBF for 12 months?

I'm not against offering some solids for experimentation/touch/texture, but I nurse to fullness first.
EXACTLY! Both my kids were EBF until after 12months (ONLY breastmilk from Mom) they had no interest in anything else! I think 6months is too young for their little bodies to have solids.
