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.
yep, us too! dd#2 really wasn't interested in solids until just recently at around 14 months, and even still, there is really no nutritional value in the 2 peas and piece of macaroni that she is getting every couple of days. Although there are days that I wish she would eat more, I am glad that she is getting mama milk so I know her nutritional needs are met
