My friends Doc said stop feeding her 5 month old son so much. He just started trying solids, but is mostly still Ebf and night nurses. He's a chunk for sure. I lean towards maybe reducing solids (although he's only just tried a couple) and telling the Doc to shove it. What are your thoughts?
Thank you GraysMama for my amazing siggy!

If he's nursing on demand, yeah I'd just cut back on the solids.

agree with others, cut back on solids and nurse more. A lot of bf babies are chunky monkeys early on and then thin out, unlike more formula fed babies who just grow and grow where as bf babies tend to slow their growth. Food for fun until they are one
