Should I expect my milk supply to decrease as I start my baby on solids?
Breastfeeding for your baby’s first year of life is recommended and the majority of your baby’s nutrition should come from breastmilk throughout that year. By one year, your baby will likely be nursing four to six times daily.
Solids are typically introduced around six months of age. In the early weeks of starting solids, your baby will probably have only a few spoonfuls at each session. This will gradually increase. Gradually your baby will be replacing a nursing session with solids, a process which should occur over several months.
Initially your supply will not change very much. Eventually as you replace nursing sessions with solids, your milk supply will decrease. For most moms this is a natural and gradual transition to weaning when mom and baby are ready.
