First of all - this is great! I'm a newbie here and already have found all the threads so helpful!
My question to all of you is about your breastfeeding schedule and solids. My daughter Emily has been on solids since she was about 4 1/2 months. Since she turned 6 months old she's been eating solids 3 times/day (9ish, 1ish and 5ish). She's a really good eater, eating about 4 ounces of food per meal.
I'm also breastfeeding 3 times/day for about 1/2 hour (7:30ish, 11ish, 3ish) and she has a bottle of breastmilk fed by her daddy at bedtime (8ish).
I haven't been feeding her any breastmilk at mealtimes. Should I be? I'm not sure if I should be finishing her off with some milk. Also, I've just started introducing a sippy cup at mealtimes - although right now all she does is chew on the handles - lol.
My questions are: Should I be feeding her breastmilk at mealtimes? Am I giving her too much or not enough breastmilk? Anyone have any sippy cup tips?
