Q.

Prefer solids to milk at moment

Hi Doc,
My 6 month old son (weighs 8.3kg) is finally eating now - I' m also exclusively breastfeeding but just started giving him a bit of water during the day now as well. Anyway, he' s eating very well. Is it ok if he' s eating more than he' s drinking milk?

Your son's weight is very good.As he is breastfed he must be drinking sufficient milk.He can have a little water now.
