Lovely mumsnetters, after some advice for my friend. Her 9 month is exclusively breastfed and despite lots of encouragement doesnt seem to want to wean. She's a big baby, so obviously getting plenty of nutrition from breast milk. She bfs 3hrly and get very cross if left longer. She has been trying to introduce solids since 6 months ish, tried all sorts of food from puree to solids, healthy stuff, treat stuff. She gags a lot even on quite runny stuff, and will often vomit. She drinks water happily from a free flow beaker but wont take milk from a bottle, she can get the milk out of the bottle but will scream with the milk in her mouth. Poor friend getting a bit drained with all the breastfeeding and no light at end of tunnel. Any words of wisdom?
dc2 was the same, just wasn't interested in solids until 10m. I just offeres a bit of whatever we were having at mealtimes and one day suddenly dc started eating. milk is the most important nutrition until about a year old, so tell your friend not to worry.
