My son is still wanting to nurse every 2 hours, and I even started him on solid food (Should I nurse him then offer solids right after, or wait an hour or so?). So many of my friends are telling me to follow babywise. I am a little nervous after reading the reviews of the theory. Any advice is welcomed at this point. thanks!Answer Question

It's a growth spurt. He's nursing a lot to build up supply so that he can outgrow your favorite outfits overnight. Feed him on demand. And let him nurse as long as he wants on one side to ensure he gets the fatty hind milk (though when babies nurse often the milk is more uniform anyway). Always nurse first then offer solids to play with. Food before one is just for fun NOT nutrition.

Babywise is dangerous. It causes failure to thrive.
