Anybody here EBF the 1st 12 months and now starting solids?

I also EBF my 3DD for the first 14 months so you'd think I'd know the answer lol. But that was 1.5yrs ago and can't really recall. I think what we are having is abnormal but I'm hoping others here that also EBF can share there experience so I can better gauge.


So 2-3 weeks after EBF'ing how much real food were your lo's eating at every meal? Examples would help too! Thank-you!

At 12 mos my DD was barely eating food...she does have medical issues, but I thought I'd chime in anyways. Swallowing solids seemed to be an issue for her. I just kept offering and one day it suddenly clicked for her and now she is a super eater at 22 mos.

Thanks for answering. I hope your daughter is doing well. My daughter has a severe milk allergy and I suspect some others as well. She has several abnormal symptoms that I believe are allergic reactions. She has an appt this coming Wed the 9th. So I'll find out more than fx. She has no problems with texture and prefers finger foods but she barely eats. She's almost 13 months now but at best eats 4-5 small pieces of anything and acts full/refuses all food. Thankfully I BF becuase she would not be getting enough nutrients to sustain if I didn't. Just doesn't seem right that she won't eat more food than a few tiny bites only 3 times a day?

Maybe she is getting full on breast I'll and just isn't hungry? Hopefully your pedi can give you some answers. TGF breastfeeding :D

I read somewhere recently that at each meal, your child needs to eat 2-3 food groups, and 1 tbsp of each food group per year of age (plus 2-3 snacks consisting of one food group). Going by that, a 1 year old at a minimum only needs 3 tbsp of food per meal.

I think you're fine, but I'm sure your pedi will tell you at your next well check visit if something isn't right :)

Thought I would update :D Pedi was worthless :? Got referral to allergist & we are looking at EOE. She already had a milk allergy but now it's wheat, soy, tomato, and ana to banana, eggs. Ella's on reflux meds the last 2 weeks and the last 4 days has been doing light years better. It's been way more than the eating.... But not the right group to go into it. Just wanted to update. Thanks for those that responded :wink:

My cousin's son has TONS of allergies. Once they got them straightened out he is an awesome eater.
