    Either way, advising her to wean some breastfeeds is pretty dodgy advice at 7 months old!
    Weaning back doesn't have to mean cutting a feed. It can mean something simple like cutting the arvo feed from 20 minutes to 15. Or 17. Or whatever.

    Have tried this the past two weeks with zero success. We tried feeding solids after 3-4 hours no breastfeed made no difference to her eating.

    If you have had some success woth BLW (of sorts) maybe just give her some food just to try the texture of. DS never ate much but sucked things here and there.

    Also kept him occupied for 10/15 mins.

    We don't leave her to cry at all and if she wakes up crying or needs to feed I'll give it for sure 😀 I always do at least 1 overnight feed.

    What meals did you try it for?/at what point in the day? Consistently for the same time for the whole 2 weeks or just every now and then during that time and for different meals?

    I'm not saying there is a way to get your bub to eat solids. Bub may have already made up bubs mind in which case night feedings may be needed for the near future - that's not a failure in any way shape or form.. (pity bub doesn't take a bottle otherwise hubby could have helped).

    Maybe they could be a separate thread about hints and tips for trying to help introduce solids?

    I have to say the DR sears article rose posted has a few good points. You have to keep it fun and (as parents) watch your facial expressions otherwise bub can be turned off.

    Op said she breastfeeds and baby doesn't take a bottle, so no way of knowing the volume she's getting. My DS was a super efficient feeder from a few weeks old, rarely took longer than 5 mins on either boob so to me, I wouldn't feel confident lessening his time on the breast. But I also feel breastmilk is far more important that him swallowing some baby cereal so was cautious about wasting his nutrients.

    We did it for lunch and dinner at the suggestion of sleep school nurses - not for 2 weeks only a few days so far. I also make sure any solids are given at least an hour after a breastfeed
