I feel really overwhelmed and a bit of a fool to be asking for help in this area, but I have no family around me to learn from.
I have a little boy who is almost 7 months old. He is having 3 meals a day,
Breakfast around 6:30 ( cereal and boob)
morning tea 10.00 (I am trying to introduce a bottle)
Lunch 1.00 (vegies and boob)
afternoon tea 3.30 (boob)
tea around 5.30 - 6.00 (vegies and fruit) then boob for bed.
I guess I wonder if I am doing the right thing, breakfast and lunch his breastfeed is quite small, which doesn't worry me that much, but his afternoon tea he is quite distracted and doesn't drink much either.
I am also having difficulty getting him to take the bottle. If I try he just tries to drink from me, when my husband tries he gets very upset and my husband works shift work so he can't always be there to help.
I was also wondering should I wait til he tells me he is hungry or when he wakes do I feed him? Also, is it ok to feed solids then wait a while before I give him a drink or should i do it one after the other?
Thanks for your help, I'm sure these must seem like trivial questions to you but I'm a bit of a worry wart!!
