  • I would think so. if your baby isnt on a liquid diet anymore..he or she may feel fuller.If your still concerned maybe you should call the doc.As long as your baby is happy and active I wouldnt worry.

  • YES. In year one, you need to nurse before solids so baby isn't shortchanged nutritionally. (Breastmilk is complete, solids are NOT.)

    It's OK if baby takes only a tiny amount in the solids.
