Hi all, My son is now completed 4 months. Hurray! This is how I felt when I went to the pediatrician, expecting the doctor would ask me to start on solids! Though the doctor was not overwelcoming about supplementing with solds, she left it to me to start giving solid food between 4 to 6 months of age. She also told me it is nice to balance between breast feeding and giving (semi)solid foods like cereal, cooked vegetales, mashed fruits, etc. But my husband wants to me exclusively breast feed upto 6 months for he read in several sites & magazines that exclusive breast feeding till 6months would be ideal for healthy growth of the baby. I am feeling tired and boring trying to breast feed throughout the day and night. I have a feeling my baby is also bored with breast milk throughout the day and night. Also, I feel she has an increased appetite to take solids in addition to breast milk. Give me your opinions about whether it is better to exclusively breastfeed or introduce solids? How do I know my baby is ready for solid foods? - Nila.
