my SO thinks that baby solid foods should be used as a filler after i'm done breastfeeding.

Is he right?

I hope that he's wrong.

His way of thinking is like this:

breastfeeding is the main meal but then solid foods should be a babys snack.

and he just told me that he thinks this because he's never seen it go this long before.

He's right. Always nurse before any solids.

He is right. But if your son isn't ready, he's not ready. When he is ready, nurse first, then solids.

thank you!

and he just told me that he wants me to stop after a year.

i'm trying to convince him that i don't want to give my son solids.

he thinks that he is ready for solids because he's crawling to me wanting to nurse so in my SO's eyes, he's ready for solids.

Why don't you think he's ready and why does your Dh?

he told me he thinks he is ready for solids because he crawls to me when he is hungry and wants to nurse.

and he is telling me that "I don't want my son being out in public and watching him lift your shirt so he can nurse"

i say he isn't ready for solids because i'm doing the BLW and my son can't hold food yet in his hands and he can't swallow without choking.
