My DD is 5 months and ebf up until this week when we have started a meal of baby porridge with purees mid-morning.
I have been offering boob after food.
When should I start with a cup and water?

I offered the cup of water along with the solids

I offered water to mine straight away when I started weaning at 5 months.

i would always offers breast/formula milk before the food and then offer water in a cup with meals smile

I'd second water with meals. I do boob before food though with a bit of a gap.

We did food before milk (otherwise DS wouldn't bother with the food), then water after/during solids. Milk after food or in between solids meals.
