My daughter has just turned 5 months, and i'm feeling lots of pressure by my MIL to start her on solids. Since my DD turned 4months, everytime i see my MIL she asks 'Is she on solids yet? and it is really starting to urk me. The other day my MIL said "Ohh most baby's by 5months are eating solids/banana etc etc". I'm trying not to take it too personal its just driving me insane.
I've got a 2yr old too, so i'm kinda holding off as long as possible cuz i know once i start there's no going back. My DD is definately not underfed by anymeans, she's got healthy chubby arms and legs, so i'm worried in that sense. I think my MIL is just trying to take some control away from me, i know that she doesn't really like me bfing her all the time and maybe its a way her her to be able to feed my daughter and get me out of the picture.
Just wondering if anyone else has been feeling pressure to start on solids when theres really no need?
