Here is a subject that not many moms agree on..
I have a 16 week old that a breastfeed exclusively. You would not believe the amount of times I have been told to give her cereal because of her size. She is 18lbs.
She still feeds on damand, through the night as well. A lot of moms tell me I am crazy for not giving her something besides my breast milk. (How do you think she got that size?)
To me that is just selfish. The best thing for your child is BM, it is the only thing they need for the first 6 months of life. Why fill them up with cereal, or anything else for YOUR OWN convenience. It's 6 months of your whole life...
There is a reason Dr's say to wait..
