Always Question The Doctor's Advice

Thanks to everyone for commenting ;) We all know that doctor is a dumb-mass...

Oh. And the doctor told me some people make cream for breastmilk and some people make skim milk. Um. Right...

I found what I was looking for. Basically I was wondering if nursing would decrease her appetite for solids. Well according to this, it doesn't: So that's good info to know!

And I think I like this article too: ... note this from that site:

Some toddlers are eating very few solids, or even no solids, at 12 months. This
is not unusual and really depends on your child - there is quite a big
variation. We like to see breastmilk making up the majority (around 75%) of
baby's diet at 12 months. Some babies will be taking more solids by 12
but others will still be exclusively or almost-exclusively breastfed
at this
point. It is normal for baby to keep breastmilk as the primary part
of his diet
up until 18 months or even longer. An example of a nice gradual
increase in
solids would be 25% solids at 12 months, 50% solids at 18
months, and 80% solids
at 24 months.
