Sorry if this is long. I am so sick of my BIL always telling me I need to feed my DD solid foods. Every time I see him he asks me is she eating real food yet. I always say no, just milk. He always makes comments like She looks hungry, or Why aren't you feeding her? What's with the obsession with what my child eats? He is 26 years old, unmarried, no kids, not exactly the baby loving type, so why the unsolicited feeding advice? Other people comment too when I say my LO is 5 months the first thing they ask is if she is sleeping well, and then is she eating solids yet. How many times do I have to say NO! We are waiting at LEAST until the recommended 6 months, if not later, especially since she was a preemie. She is a chunk, so she is eating just fine with only breast milk. But now my DH is starting to ask When should we start solids, i think all the comments are getting to him. He also has been asking how much longer I plan on BF. It's like everyone is so anxious for her to grow up. My original goal was to BF to 6 months, but now I am almost there and would like to continue longer but I feel like everyone is against me on it. I just hate having to explain or justify how I choose to feed my baby, especially to people who have no clue what the current recommendations are. Sorry for the long paragraph mobile rant!
