I am EP. Thankfully after the intial hump we are now 100% BF, but I don't think I'm going to keep upi much longer. I am 15 days ahead, but she's quickly eating us out of house and home! Originally I had hoped to be on 100% BM until she got to 6 months and then start solids, but given how much she eats and that I know we are headed for formula supplement in the somewhat near future, I'm not so sure now.
So which is better in your opinion... starting solids at the earlier end of the spectrum around 4 months in hopes of avoiding formula or still waiting for 6 months? Would it make a difference? I plan to ask the doc at the next appointment, but wanted to start thinking through it myself before I chat with them. My guess is they'll leave it up to me, like they did with Eli. What are your thoughts?
FWIW I really do think she'd be ready close to 4 months. She already gets mad at us for eating in front of her. She follows ours forks with her eyes and cries for a bottle at EVERY meal, even if she just ate. And she has really good trunk/head support at this point. H says he thinks I gave birth to a 3 month old... lol.
