My 11 month old son is currently on a nursing strike (going on a week now... ) and he only drinks water from a cup and receives a bit of EBM from a glass with a straw. I'm giving him all that I can pump for him, which admittedly doesn't feel like much! Maybe 10 oz. a day. He is not sick, but is striking for an emotional reason so it is taking time to work through.
My question is this: what should I be trying to feed him right now to ensure that his nutritional needs are being met? We do not wish to start cow's milk, other "milks" (rice, soy, etc.) or formula at this time as I am still working on getting him back to the breast. I am asking specifically about solids here, not drinks.
Does anyone have any advice? I'm hoping this will not be a long-term strike (it feels like ages already...) and that we can go back to normal soon. But in the interim, I would like to be feeding him to keep him in prime shape for working up the energy to nurse again!
