She doesn't get a choice about solid foods.
As long as you keep giving in to her she will keep demanding.
You need to be strong and stop the overnight feeds. She doesn't need them. You also need to offer her solid foods throughout the day. She will not starve herself but she will try and hold out until you give in to her wanting to be breastfed. Be strong, YOU are the parent and in control, NOT her!!!!!!
She should have been having solids from 6 months for taste and from 12 months to slowly replace the breastfeeding.
You need to be cruel and stop giving in to her. If you keep this up you will have an uncontrollable toddler and an even worse teen.
Be the parent and stick to the rules.
