Here is how I weaned Emily:
Breast fed exclusively for 5 1/2 mon.
Started solids at 5 1/2 mon (rice and wheat baby cereals)
Started slowly introducing veggies and fruits at 6 mon.
Added yogurts at 9 or 10 mon.
Introduced other meats/proteins at 10-11 mon (she still doesn't eat meat that well, but likes beans, cheese and eggs)
More and more finger foods after 9-10 mon.
Started supplementing some formula after 10 mon (3 breast feedings/day and one formula bottle)
At 11 mon, dropped another breast feeding time (2 breast feedings/day and two formula bottles/day)
At 12 mon. dropped another breast feeding time (1 breast feeding/day and 16-20 oz/day of whole milk by sippy cup or bottle)
So here we are at 13 mon. Time to say good-bye to the boobie Emily. Mama loves you!!!
