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

DD has solids two to three times a day, she is 11 months old. However, she still rather have the boob to any other food. She eat a few bites of solids and nurses before and after. She has actually increased her BFing sessions since I started solids rather than decreasing. I started at 7 months but she HATED purees so I posponed it till she had teeth. At 8 months so got two teeth and was able to handle very finely cut veggies/fruits. Now she has three (two bottom, one top) and can eat cereals, fruits, veggies, etc.

I started it because she was really interested in food and would grab food off of our plates while we were eating. Id rather have her get food I know is good for her and wont upset her stomach (I use a lot of spices in food and I don't think she needs them) than have her grabbing food off our plates.
