Thank you for your replies thus far.
I don't think that it is that they "should" be fed solids just that it is "ok" to start solids at those ages. Stay strong and you aren't doing anything wrong. If your baby is thriving they are obviously getting enought to eat. It just drives me nuts that we have to push solids on babies. I have a 10 month old and she eats solids when I remember and usually it is just bits from my plate but other than that she is breastfed and she nurses a good amount during the day. Also my LLL leader has a grandson and he is over a year and is just now really getting into solids.

I hope they back off and just let you be a mother to your children.

hi

Hi there, I'm brand new to these boards and just read your posts. If you haven't already, check out breastfeedingonline. There are a lot of printable handouts that may be helpful. Most were written by Dr. Jack Newman, he is an amazing dr dedicated to promoting bf'ing. He runs clinics in Toronto, Ontario - if you like I can find one of the numbers for you, I'm sure they'd be glad to provide some good information. The guidelines are a bit different in Canada, it is recommended that you bf for the first two years instead of one, but I doubt that would have any impact. I'm sure they'd have evidence to support your stance if you were delaying solids due to allergies.

I can't believe this is being done to you and I wonder if it would have ever been brought up if your Dd was ff...
