2 Q's: keeping up BFing alongside solids, and any foods to limit?
Hi I have two questions:
1) I want to keep BFing Ro for at least the rest of his first year, ideally until 2 or perhaps beyond depending on how we both feel. How can I make sure he doesn't replace his BF with solids to the point of giving up BFing? What about other liquids - chamomile tea, diluted juice?
2) Are there any foods to limit? My Mom told me to not give too much banana (something to do with potassium or one of the vitamins he shouldn't overdose on?) so he only has a third of a banana a day. Is she right? Is there anything (else)?
For us, dropping feeds happened very slowly. We done BLW so Evie didn't actually eat properly until 7.5-8 months and even then it was small amounts.
I found that the length of time she was at the breast reduced and then slowly the day feeds disappeared.
Recently she has dropped a feed she used to ask for about 3pm and now only has BM at night which is fine with me and she asks for milk from the fridge in the day. Also im finding that since just after Christmas she asks for cuddles as comfort if she falls or get hurt instead of milk.
Regarding food, bananas are fine altho I don't give them to evie everyday as I find they cause her to become a little constipated so she will have 1 about twice a week and each time I will offer her a whole banana and she usually finishes it
