Re: exclusively breastfeeding until 1

My baby's doctor says that babies cannot really digest food until 15 months. I started trying to get my son to eat solids at 6 months, and he had no interest. It wasn't until 15 months on the dot that he started being interested in eating anything at all (other than my boobs of course). I felt bad because no matter how hard I tried, my son wouldn't want to eat anything. So I say, from what my doctor recommends, and my personal experience, don't stress about whether your baby eats or doesn't eat, until they are 15 months.

Re: exclusively breastfeeding until 1

I waited too long with my 3rd son and I think it may have played a role in his disinterest in food for a while. When I finally started trying to get him eating food (close to a year) he had no interest and didn't eat much of anything until he was about 2. He is still super picky (he is almost 3 1/2).

He may just be a picky guy but I will be introducing solids much earlier with this little guy because I do feel there is a developmental component to it.

Just because breastfeeding can be enough nutritionally doesn't mean that there aren't benefits developmentally to starting solids in the second half of the first year.

My oral aversion daughter had breastmilk only for four years, as long as they get enough, there's no need to worry.
