    I think I was told around 8/9 months but I never do. My son is 15 months now. It's pure laziness - I've always had an oversupply of breastmilk and need that morning feed for my own comfort. When he was younger I would just wait half an hour or so before offering breakfast. Now he eats anything and everything you give to him

    I started giving solids before milk when I was trying to cut down feeds. I started to wean at 9-10 months so gave food before the feeds I was trying to cut out.

    I was still feeding pretty much 3 hrly during the day at that age so from memory I would do as follows:
    6-6.30- milk feed on waking,
    8-8.30- breakfast (solids)
    Early/mid morning - feed then snack before sleep
    Lunch - solid food
    Mid afternoon - feed then snack before sleep
    Quick feed between preparing dinner (to keep him happy)
    Dinner - solid food with water
    Bath and pjs then feed to sleep.

    DS is 9 months and I have just started to give food before milk at lunchtime. So far it isn't making any difference with how much he eats, so I'm not in any rush to change any other meals yet. My friend was advised to swap at 8 months by her paed.

    I started breastfeeding DS as soon as he woke then before his morning and arvo sleep and before bed around 8 months. It was the only way I could get him to have a good feed. So he would have lunch and dinner before milk. I was also feeding him at least twice overnight.
