Talk and controversy about raising children, feeding them, clothing, etc. never ceases. With the mass approval or condemnation from the public face both ordinary and stellar mothers. Twilight star Nikki Reed decided to join this conversation. She posted a voluminous post on Instagram a few hours ago, explaining to fans why she’s still feeding her almost two-year-old daughter, Bodie Soleli, with her breasts.

“I am often asked how long I plan to breastfeed. To be honest, I have no idea. I just listen to my daughter, and she tells her exactly what she needs. In her 20 months she is just beginning to be interested in food. After a year of mixing different purees, I realized that my baby does not like baby food. Diko, huh? ”Nicky wrote.

I often get asked how long I plan on breastfeeding. To be honest, I have no idea how long her and I will be on this journey together. I follow her lead, and she tells me exactly what she needs. At 20 months she is only just becoming interested in food. I discovered after a year of blending and smooshing and mashing, that my daughter doesn’t like mushy baby food. Wild right? It wasn’t until someone suggested I skip puréed food and go straight to finger foods that she became intrigued by what was on her plate. Who knew some kids just don’t ever go for blended baby food. I tried bananas, avocado, all the semi-soft good stuff and she rejected everything. Never in a million years did I think to skip that step when she only had two teeth. Also, I thought all babies loved avocado! So all you mamas out there having trouble feeding your little one the mushy stuff, maybe try over-steamed veggies diced up itty bitty so he/she can play with textures. I wish someone had told me this sooner! If your little one isn’t eating puréed solids, they might want to go straight for big people food! Right now thats where were at, still breastfeeding and skipping right to finger foods. Also, in case you need to hear it again because I definitely did, whatever you’re doing you are doing it right! Every baby is on their own path doing things when and how they need to, and our job is to trust our gut, talk to other mamas and just go with the flow! Ps accidental matching outfits…come on!

The actress is raising her daughter along with Ian Somerhalder, who is now actively promoting her new project “Vampire Wars”. He spent the promised month next to his family, during which he abstained from guests, communication with the media and even from cellular communication, but now Reed has to deal in many ways with his daughter herself. “I tried bananas, avocados and other soft fruits, but she refused everything. I did not give up attempts, but then someone advised me to just skip this stage and go straight to solid food. I wish someone would tell me this before! ”The star wrote.

In addition to raising a small body, Nikki Reed, together with Dell, is engaged in the creation of unusual eco-ornaments made from motherboards of computers, smartphones and other equipment.
