hey mamas! I hope you are all doing well! As the summer winds down, and I face the reality that my dear sweet little boy will be going to daycare in September, I find myself nervous about being able to keep up my supply while we are separated for 32 hours a week. I know that i cannot keep up with life at this pace for much longer (if only you had witnessed the break down last night) and I do need the help, but it's so hard. however, i just realized that my bouncing boy will be 5 months old the week he starts at school, which should mean that he will be starting solids soon(ish). I don't want to force him to eat solids too soon, but i was wondering what cues you ladies look for in your LO to tell you when they're ready? I usually wait until they can sit up unassisted, and they show some interest. You?
another question i have on the same subject, is that, if my supply does drop (and i only have a small stash in the freezer) would you add solids (homemade baby food) or supplement with formula?
just pondering the possibilities as I enjoy a rare quiet moment with both kids napping!
