The insider guide to the world of a lactation consultant in private practice.
When to start giving a Breastfed baby solid food .
There seems to be alot of discuss about guidelines for weaning changing in Ireland . They have not changed , nor are they going to . Breastfed babies need very little extra food up to one year . You can see from this graph (WHO guidelines for infant feeding ) that the amount of breastmilk needed from 6-12 months is still huge . I wish this graph was used more extensively to train HCPs .
