I'm breastfeeding exclusively and at 6 months I'm struggling now. I started feeding her food at 4 months. I know that's pretty early but I was having other issues which made feeding essential. She had a thrush nappy rash and was pooing very frequently. It took me months to get rid of the fungal nappy rash and the only thing that really helped was feeding solids. Because of the nappy rash and also being on antibiotics at a very young age I think it has put her off food. I used to have to give her 2.5ml of amoxicillin at 10 weeks for 2 weeks and she hated it, followed up by a 1ml oral thrush treatment. I think this may have caused an aversion to things put in her mouth other than breastmilk. I tried to switch from breastmilk to formula at around 3 months as advised by the health visitor. It just didn't work. I tried breastmilk in bottles, teats that were designed to be nipple like, she just wasn't interested. I gave up. I started solids at 4 months much to her disapproval. I noticed her nappy rash started to clear up and continued solids much to my daughters disapproval but it fixed the bigger problem and the horrible nappy rash was gone. I suppose I should elaborate on this nappy rash. It was a horrific fungal nappy rash that appeared before we even left the hospital. I was back and forth to the doctors multiple times about it. I used countless creams. They gave me so many creams that just did nothing. Eventually I seen a specialist at the hospital. I got a very strong steroid cream and an anti fungal cream along with epaderm for normal nappy changes that helped things along the way. But the real success was giving my daughter solids. For 2 months now I've been feeding my daughter solids. She doesn't find it pleasant. She seems to hate food unless it's breast milk. I distract her. I put the spoon in her mouth. I feed her. It stops her nappy rash. This is a horrible experience. Does anyone have any advice for a situation like this? I'm scared I'm going to give my daughter a food aversion. She would just happily live off purely breast milk I think. This is very unpleasant for me but I know in my daughters case it is avoiding a much worse thing( horrific nappy rash). I just want my baby to enjoy food. She hates the experience just now. I know it's unlikely but would be very interested to hear any early weaning for medical reasons stories and help. Thanks everyone.
