First solids

Hello mummies! My baby is starting solids soon! May I know when your child first started in solids, how does it affect his/her milk intake? I understand that at first, they’ll eat small quantity only, but when can those baby cereal/purée/porridge be used to replace 1 milk feed? My baby doesn’t like to drink milk so I’m hoping solids can help!

You can replace a feed whenever you/baby feels comfortable. But most babies will only want milk when they're hungry so feed milk first then top up with solids after. If your baby can take solid while they're hungry I guess you can try replacing a feed.
