I have a question about how many times to breastfeed DS when he has 2 meals a day of 2-3 tablespoons. He has some fruit at 10 am and veggies at around 4-5pm. Loves banana and peaches, have tried avocado, pear and apple sometimes mixed with baby rice cereal. Having some trouble with the veggies though, so far he has had sweet potato, some cauliflower mixed with potato but he doesnt like it as much (maybe not sweet enough?).
He is 5 and a half months, and I know with BF it's better to wait till they are 6 months but he was ready, he keeps grabbing our food so he is hungry and his Ped told us between 4-6 months it's fine to start solids.
He seems to be waking up a lot still at night due to teething (he drools a lot, sucks on bottom lip, chews on everything, seems to be a bit better when i rub his gums with teething gel) but as he wakes up so much a night, I still end up breastfeeding him twice to help him settle (he wakes a more than that but i know i cant feed him everytime he wakes).
So he still has about 7-8 breastfeeds a day plus two meals. Is this too much milk? the Health nurse doing his monthly check ups said that from 6 months i have to night wean as he won't need those night feeds but I just cant see that happening any time soon. Just dont know how to go about night weaning as he's my first baby.
