Q.

Milk and Solids

Dear prof
I notice that quite a few questions are posted on this subject!
My twins are 6 months old, and eating solids very well indeed. They have porridge in the morning, veggies for lunch (occasionally with a little mince) and cereal with fruit in the late afternoon. They love it, and have had no reactions to anything. They are decreasing their milk feeds though, drinking between 600 and 800ml per day. Is this OK? The are happy, growing and sleeping through. They weigh around 7kgs now (exprems born at 34 weeks).
Thank you

Your twins are doing very well and are gaining weight and are happy. There is no need for concern.
