My daughter is 8 months old and most of her diet consists of breastmilk. I'm more or less doing baby-led weaning, and letting her self-feed. She is very interested in food (she gets upset when we eat in front of her and she doesn't have something) but doesn't eat very much of it. When I have tried spoon-feeding her she's really not into it; I suppose we could get her on more purees with some effort (my husband wants to, and just bought a Baby Bullet), but I think she seems to be doing okay. She has no teeth yet but is working on one.
I'm fine with following her lead on solids... EXCEPT I really really want to be done pumping at work after a year, and I do still want to breastfeed sometimes. Pumping at work is such a giant headache for me. I think if I stop pumping then, her diet will necessarily need to be more solids and cow's milk.
4 months is a while in baby time, I know. Is this realistic? I just see such a big gap between what she's eating now and what I expect her to be eating then, and I'm wondering how we're going to close it.
