Baby drinking less milk after starting solids.. is it normal??

My 7mo baby eats solids 2-3 times a day. She is EBF .. so she drinks less milk than before , i mean before she used to drink for 30 mins.. now she drinks for 15 mins n sometimes even less than that.. i feed her milk first and solids after that so that she drinks milk more.. but its still the same.. but her weight growth seems very good..

    Totally normal. My LO is formula fed and around 7 months is when she went from drinking 28-32oz a day to 21-24oz a day. She loves food and preferred it, even when she got milk first. As long as she is growing, it is fine.

    Yep. “Food before one is just for fun.” Is misleading and in many cases, 100% false. My pediatrician told me that as long as she was getting 18-25 oz per day after starting solids then not to worry. You can call your pediatricians office to make sure they’re on the same page but you should be ok!

    Yeah it’s fine. My son loved solid food so much he stopped drinking much milk at all. He gained fine and didn’t have any issue. No worries. Babies have a way of telling you what they need.
