Took my dd for her six month check up and shots :( she weighs almost 16 lbs (birth weight was 7lb14.8 oz) anyways she's ebf no solids at all yet, I was just waiting for her to be fully sitting with no assistance to start BLS. But when the doc asked about solids I said we hadn't started yet. He says well that's ok it optional from 4-6 months but at 6 months you HAVE to start solids because she can't get everything from you.
EXCUSE ME?! Ugh, then he tried go convince me to start with cereal and I declined and explained I thought it was a waste of time with no nutritional value. Which he then argued that they are iron fortified and she doesn't get that from BM alone, smh !! He said to do polyvisol with iron..... I just smile and nod, they told me to start that at 4 weeks... Did I? Hell no and she's just fine thank you. Ok vent over! It's just frustrating.
