I need help starting solids.
My little Jeffrey is 5.5 months now and has been showing signs of wanting to start solids for like... 5 or 6 weeks now. I've been putting it off because I'm not exactly sure how to do it.
Here's the thing--we exclusively breastfeed and I want to be able to breastfeed until he's at least a year. So how do I start solids and still maintain our breastfeeding schedule / my milk supply?
Do I give him solids after he's done nursing, in the middle of a feeding, or between feedings?
Do I start with one feeding of solids per day? How long before I add another?
I feel so... inexperienced.
