My daughter is our 3rd but first to be nursed this long so I'm unsure of what's "normal". Should I be nursing before or after I offer solids? Right now she eats solids 3 times a day and nurses AFTER. I have heard that solids should be after. Also, at 8 months what table foods is your baby eating? She is more interested in self feeding and gets bored with the baby foods.Answer Question

Breastfeeding remains to be the main source of nutrition through the 12th mo. Breastmilk is important for braingrowth. Babies never need baby food they can start on fork mashed foods they feed themselves. The latest research shows there is evidence of need to stay away from any foods for fear of allergies including peanuts after 6 mo.
