I am still exclusively breastfeeding Rilynn. She just turned 7 months old. She doesn't seem to be in need of anything else right now (no waking up at night or crying after nursing) and I quite like the availability of how she gets her meals now. I guess I just picture starting solids as a constant cooking, mashing, blending, mixing of all these ingredients Septtro and I aren't eating and it stresses me out...big pain in the hiny. Although I'm well aware that I'm very good at blowing things way out of proportion. But then I started to feel guilty because I thought, "I'm holding her back!" The pediatricians all say start solids at 6 months. But part of me just doesn't get what's so magical about 6 months and solids. I mean, what if they're doing just fine with nursing still?
So then I came across this article: http://www.keeperofthehome.org/2010/04/feeding-babies-a-relaxed-common-sense-approach.html
I think I'm gonna try that....AND, just take one day at a time and see how things go.
