For those of ye that have introduced solids, when did ye start giving the baby extra water with meals instead of milk?
My six month old is well established on three small meals a day. He is a great eater and really enjoys it. He is nursing less during the day, as expected. He nurses alot in early morning and evening time. I feel like he is still getting a lot of milk but there is no pattern as I just offer it constantly during the day incase he's thirsty. He'll take a few sups but Im worried I'm forcing it on him too much! He has plenty wet nappies and gaining weight so Im not worried about dehydration but after months of constant nursing it is hard to get used to spacing out the feeds.
I've offered him cooled boiled water in a bottle or sippy cup but he mostly just chews the teat.
