Scared she might wean

Okay, so apparently I weaned as soon as I started food, though my mother wanted to feed me longer.

How common is that? I am having some, uh, emotional issues to say the least with dd starting solids in a few weeks. I don't want to do it, but she'll be six months on the 18th, she can sit by herself, she's teething, she has a pincer grasp, and she's lost her tongue thrust for the most part. She's become very good at taking breastmilk from a spoon (we give her a probiotic supp this way).

So I know it's probably time when she hits 6mo, even though I wanted to go longer. Its totally selfish, I know. Click here to enlarge

Are there any ways to make it less likely she might try to wean?

Dude, if it helps, Coop eats three meals a day and has no intention of letting his nursies go.

Just make sure you nurse, then offer the solid food. Don't stress it.

I agree with Scout. Nurse her first then give her the solids. Most babies still want to nurse at that age. Its still a comfort to them.

Babies don't wean without cause at six months. Your mother was probably waaaay over feeding solids Click here to enlarge

She'll be fine Click here to enlarge

Reilly nursed to 4 years Click here to enlarge and Ben got his first solids at 4 months (the pediatrician said so, and I was obedient back then) but nursed to 10.5 months when I weaned him--he'd have continued.

I agree with nurse first, then solids.

Dd nursed to 26 month and we started solids somewhere between 5 and 6months. Ds nursed until 15 or 16 months and we started solids around 6 months. I think he weaned quicker because I had supply issues this time with pumping.

Lime time.
