I'm not sure why I can't quite wrap my head around how to start solids. My son is 5 and half months and exclusively breastfed. We're going to try cereal this weekend. My questions are, how do I choose a time, should I breastfeed before or after the feeding and how often should I try (once a day, twice a day, once every other day?). It's my understanding that BF sessions won't lessen until 8-10 months when solids should be offered first? Then I'm wondering how do I know what BF sessions to eliminate...?
