I have always wanted to make it to a full year exclusively breastfeeding. However I never make it a full year without letting our little ones begin to eat solids. I usually give baby food, organic but still baby food. This time, with number eight I decided to skip the whole baby food mess. I was ale to hold her off until eight months before letting her begin tasting things. She LOVES solids. Not that she gets our food everyday, but boy she loves it when she does.
