Dd2 is 9 months and LOVES her some solids. We're doing babyled solids (no purees, only table foods) but nursing immediately prior. With my first dd, she wasn't all hardcore into solids until 11.5 months. This little chunker tries to out stubborn me and just wants to eat whenever we eat no matter if she nurses first or not. It's a battle every day. I know sometimes I've let her eat without a full nursing, but I haven't ever let her eat without nursing at all. I know nursing immediately before offering solids is best, I'm just dreading the next three months. I've told dh that we won't offer foods until at least 9 months with the next baby! Haha. I just need some encouragement to keep nursing first before solids. It's hard because with a 3 yr old in the house, too, sometimes the baby gets mad when she can't have snacks, too. Nursing to one year is my absolute minimum goal. Nursing up to age 2 would be awesome. I don't want dd2 to wean early or not get optimal nutrition because of over feeding solids. I offer food 1-2 times a day right now.
Sorry this was long and a bit disconnected.
