    Just wondering, did you find offering solids alongside a bottle worked best when you first started weaning, or did it work better to add a solid meal at a different time?
    Did the solids make your LO go a bit longer between feeds, and if so, when?
    I hope it will with May, she is feeding every 2 hours on hungry baby milk through the day now - its crazy!

    At first we offered milk with solids and now he has his solids without milk :)

    tom normally goes pretty well between feeds anyway so didnt really change, he does sleep alot better though.

    Hayden and Casen were both going around 4hrs between feeds so I would try solids at about 3hrs, when they would be a bit hungry but not starving so they wouldn't get frustrated. I never gave a bottle right after solids though it seemed like all of my friends did, they were full after solids, we gave water sippy with it if they needed a drink

    I found it better for Lexie to have them at a different time to her bottle. I give her breakfast about an hour and a half after her first bottle and then tea is about 6.30 (2 hours after a bottle) and justbefore bath time!!! xx
