She's still nursing 7-11 times a day (at least 2 are comfort since she spits up like crazy afterward) and is now eating at least one meal of solid food a day. We are doing baby-led weaning, which amounts to "feed the baby whatever you adults are eating."
She started seriously grabbing for every bite we took at about 5.5 months (so almost 6 weeks ago) and we decided it was time to let her have solids. We gave her some bread crusts to start with and she was thrilled. The next day she got a peach and ate about a third of one. Actually gnawed it and swallowed it. She'd have gone for more but we ran out since we thought she'd stop after only a couple slices. Whoops!
Since then, Little Monster has had green beans, apples, oranges, pasta with a bit of butter and cheese, and a trip to the local Chinese buffet where she ate very well. She got a chicken drummy, half a spring roll, a good bite of egg roll filling, some celery (not a hit), hard boiled egg, green beans again but fried, and an ice cream cone. So far she had a kind of scary reaction the second time she tried oranges she turned red, got some hives, and had some trouble breathing but it was solved by some bena.dryl. Otherwise things are going well!
Just feeding the baby is so much simpler than fancy mushes for just the baby. I am a big fan.
