  • If you are replacing nursing sessions with meals, then yes, your supply will decrease. Nurse first, then give solids. At 6 months, the solids are more for experimenting than for nutrition, so don't worry about giving a lot. Just remember to try foods out one at a time and wait a few days in between to check for allergies. Personally, I liked having my babies eat at the table with us at mealtime, so I would nurse right before we ate and then sit them in the high chair for a few bites of mashed food and some finger foods.
    Remember - your breastmilk will supply all of the nutrients your baby needs until they are 1. Don't let your Dr. tell you otherwise - they are often misinformed about breastfeeding and tend to go by standards set for formula-fed babies. Happy feeding!! :)
