    Question Breastfeeding and solids

    Advertisements
    We started Cristian on cereal today. I'm just curious though, do you feed them cereal first and then give them the breast? Feed them breast first? I dunno. I really want him to keep breastfeeding and not have to give him formula. I mixed his cereal with breastmilk too.

    His main source of nutrition is still BM. BF him like you always do and then offer solids. You dont want him to fill up on cereal that does not have the same nutritional value as BM and then him not wanting to breastfeed.
