Hello!


I will share with you what our pediatrician told us:


When your LO is consuming solids, their breastmilk intake should be 24-32 oz. a day.

You should still be able to nurse her in the middle of the night. She should be getting enough during the day that she does not need lots of nutrition at night and is most likely waking up to be nursed for the closeness and comfort.

kellymom.com is the best website as far as I am concerned. there are tons of great links about starting solids and about how in this country we start too many solids too early (which could cause you to dry up!). very enlightening

and, also, lots of info about infant formula. it will make you think twice about giving her a bottle.

of course, i was raised on the stuff. but then again, i think most of us were.
