Excellent plan.  :)

I think it's like most other things: if it doesn't make sense for you and your baby, you're the expert on her, so do what you need to do.  I'm convinced she's got something mixed up, fwiw.

Yup sounds good! Lots of time to increase solids and reduce milk by the time she is one.

we dont eat well enough to BLW (on our to do list to sort out our own diets!) and we had a possible allergy with DD1 so that's why i'm going down the puree route with a new food every 3 days.....so, ya, i'm gonna  stick to that ....

what bothers me is her insistence that milk is not to be the primary source of nutrition...

Neither did we, but it did sort out our diet too! You should do what you are comfortable with and if this is it then great.

My mention of Weetabix was that it contains sugar. I've never checked the sugar content, but had assumed it was quite low on the sugar side hence letting LJ have it if she asks for it. Just prefer Shreddies (not shredded wheat as I may have previously said in error) and porridge as they don't contain the sugar. xxx

Yes, excellent plan.

I think you were right the first time. Shredded wheat is without sugar and shreddies has sugar.
