Breastfeeding Advice

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 05-11-2007

At seven months, your baby may begin to eat mashed or pureed vegetables
and fruit in addition to infant cereal. These foods are not as important as
breast milk. Do not worry if he is more interested in playing with his foods
than eating them. Nursing him will meet most of his food needs.

Sometimes, your baby may bite down on your breast with his new teeth
while he is breastfeeding. He doesn’t know that it hurts you. Usually, this
happens late in the feeding. If it does, slip your finger in between his gums
and gently say, “No.” If he does it again, slip your finger in between his
gums and gently say, “No” again.

To learn more about breastfeeding, you may want to contact your local
health department, WIC clinic, hospital, La Leche League or doctor. You
can call La Leche League at 1-800-LALECHE or visit their Web site at
www.lalecheleague.org/.
