How do you? I ebf and (naturally?) spend more time with Chiquita as he is at work, and I know her better and play for longer periods with her; the feeding particularly makes OH feel rather excluded. We have given her a bottle of expressed milk occasionally but with limited success. He's great with her but very aware that I need to be there for when she's hungry. Chiquita is nearly four months and OH would like to start weaning her when she gets to the minimum age for it. If it were up to me I'd leave her to 6 months and do baby-led weaning later. I know baby guts can't always cope well with food too early. However, a friend who's a nurse has advised me that the 6-month recommendation is a WHO one, based on less developed countries, and also that later weaning can lead to fussy eaters. I'm really torn: I don't want OH feeling all excluded and unbonded because I do all the feeding, but I don't want to wean her too early and I don't want to give up breastfeeding her for quite a while yet. On the other hand, she'll need to take some milk that doesn't directly come from me when I go back (she'll be seven months) so we do need to get her to feed from OH either by bottle or cup, breast or formula milk. I'd like to feed her say, twice a day, when I'm back at work, and then probably she'll have to have a formula for the rest. Has anyone else been in this situation? I'm nervous about formula, about leaving him out, about feeding her not from me, about weaning prematurely because OH wants to start asap- and I don't want to overreact or create tension between us by making all the practical child rearing decisions. Please advise!
