Baby turning 5 months on the 8th. How do I introduce food if I'm exclusively breastfeeding? 

First and foremost, it's really important to look for readiness signs:

  • one is that they can sit up on their own
  • sit with their head up on their own
  • showing interest in your food and chewing is a big sign they're ready

It's recommended to continue breastfeeding while you are introducing solids into your baby's life so it's added as a way to be complementary to breastfeeding and not to replace it. I also highly recommend checking out @solidstarts on instagram. She's amazing and has some great advice, some great tips for how to introduce solids into your baby's diet. i actually just interviewed her from MomTalks last week so her interview will be out probably in a couple months now but check her out in the meantime she's got some great advice for introducing solids.

My baby is 3 weeks old and has been exclusively breastfeeding. How can I introduce bottles?

There are a couple different tips i have for introducing a bottle to your exclusively breastfed baby

  • getting a slow flow nipple and this way it'll work a little bit more like the breast and the milk flow won't be as heavy and so they can slowly adjust to a bottle and also having only a small amount in there just so that they can get used to it.
