5 months 2 weeks breast feeding.

I also started giving Weston some food that I made. He is definitely physically ready for food. Lost the tongue thrust reflex, and sits well with support. I don't believe in that 'reaching for food' thing. He would reach for anything, whether it's food or the cat. Doesn't mean he wants to swallow the cat lol

He's had avocado, pears, and sweet potato so far, but still needs the boob juice afterwards. Maybe to wash it down

OH, and DH and I went out to a movie and lunch, and he had his first bottle. He wasn't a fan, kept biting the nipple and squirting it out the sides of his mouth. Maybe the nipple flows too fast. I have one other nipple type, but we don't go out much so I'm not going to make a big deal out of it. He was still a good boy while we were gone, even though he didn't eat much.

glad to hear the food is going well, but remember, food for fun til they are one, which means, until they are one (at least), breastmilk or formula should be their main source of calories/nutrition, so keep nursing away. And good job with getting some time out with DH You are going to be at 6 months before you know it!!!

Oh yes, I know. I only give him food once or twice a day. I put them in ice cube trays and he'll eat 2 cubes.

If they start harping on me about iron (cereal) I'll start giving him meats. I want to try to make my own meat too.

Not a big fan of the change in 'output' though lol have to rinse his diapers now. lol

I knew there was a vegan mama on this board but I didn't know who! What do you eat for iron and the stuff that is in meat that we need?? I don't want to give Zoe meat, the animals are fed too much crap and I don't want her to have it yet.

Annnd, we have over 15 months under our belts. Which means just over a year just breastfeeding. It hasn't been easy, but it has been so worth it
