Re: Starting food & nursing

We started our son on solids at 6months. Since then he has struggled with constipation every now & then. His stools are formed & sometimes too hard. We do give him prune juice. Any suggestions.

Re: Starting food & nursing

I'm just looking for suggestions. I'm thinking I'll start solids when DD is closer to 6-7 months of age, but I'm trying to figure out how to start. She loves her boobs right now though.

Re: Starting food & nursing

Both of my successfully breastfed kids I had no issues with keeping my supply up here after solids were introduced. It is the weaning and how full once I am fully nursing.

My thing is getting youngest eventually off nursing as he loves to nurse but as I am the only one home at night so the, "oh daddy you go" won't work. If youngest really wants mommy it doesn't matter how much daddy tries to do something to distract the little guy- that is about the size of our toddler.

Re: Starting food & nursing

I've been worried about this too and even though I know our bodies are supposed to adjust I get nervous about my supply. ( my son was lip/tongue tied so it took us a lot to keep the BF going) but here we are... 6 months... And it is good to hear others experiences 🏻

Re: Starting food & nursing

I've started my 5 month old on baby foods (sweet potato and banana mostly) and I heard that starting them off on baby cereals isn't the best way to introduce them to foods because they are tougher on baby's tummy. Any opinions on the matter? He's breastfed exclusively.

Re: Starting food & nursing

I'm wondering when I should start introducing them to my little one... He was born 2 months premature so does that mean that I will need to wait til he is 6 months adjusted ( actually 8 months?) I know I will also ask my dr about this but just wondering if other mommas have experience with starting solids with premature babies.
