Yes I nurse him before I go to bed if he hasn't already woke to eat. I am still pumping as much as before while I am at work, in addition to pumping first thing in the morning after he nurses (something I started a while ago to make a freezer stash). My husband was concerned he would suffer from malnutrition if he didn't eat while I was at work, but I didn't think so...
I am very familiar with baby-led weaning, I did it with my other two sons. He, however, just does not put things in his mouth (even toys). He sits at the table with us at every meal time, and I try to always give him something, whether it is something we are eating or another item, and he just rolls it around for a couple minutes and then pushes it onto the floor. I know he will come around eventually, it is just his sudden refusing the bottle that is throwing a monkey wrench into things and making me wish he would eat something sooner rather than later. I have tried cooked carrots, sweet potato wedges, beans, banana, pear, ham, turkey, celery (more as a teething aid), oatmeal, peanut butter (off of a celery stick), puffs. The peanut butter is the only thing he wanted more of, but he still isn't EATING it yet.
Thanks a lot for your input.
