My daughter is 8 months old, breast-fed and we are about to start having our third solids meal. Next month I want to continue a nice gradual weaning process by actually dropping a nursing time. What do I need to give my daughter at these meal times instead of breast milk? I don't really want to have to use formula because we've never used it. Is water + a variety of solids enough? I'm confused about how to wean and yet still make sure my baby has the right fluids for each meal. I don't plan to totally stop breast-feeding until closer to 12 months, but I need to know what to incorporate during the process. Help!
