hello! my baby is not six months old, and exclusivly breastfed, i had never understood what a parent meant by a baby thriving on breastmilk, but i do now! she's gaining weight, she's in the 75 percentile, she's nearly crawling, she laughs, is wide eyed and seems to take so much in! she still has one feed in the night but sleeps really well. When i went to see the health visitor last, when eloise was 23 weeks, she had asked if i had started to introduce solids yet, i said no and she almost told me i would be introducing at six months! but eloise is doing so well, and i really believe in the benifits of breast milk that i don't think we are ready for solids. i was exclusivly breastfed until i was over nine months! is there anyone out there who refrained from introducing solids at six months? what age were your ones when you started to add solids to their diets? i'd like something to tell the health visitor if she complains about me not introducing solids yet!! thank you!
