I'm getting to a point where I don't know what to do.
This is the 3rd time baby has refused to eat before bed time.
Here is his basic schedule that he has created for himself. He's 6 MONTHS.
Wake around 6 or 630 am - it ranges
Nap from about 830 am or so until 10 or so
Sometimes nap sometimes nurse again
but generally sleep between 12 and 1 until 2 or 3
Nurse at 3
Nurse between 5 and 6
Sleep between 630 and 7
He will wake in the night around 3 or 4 to nurse again (he's only made it 7 to 6 am once or twice)
In general, we have offered him solids for breakfast after nursing as well as after dinner for nursing. It's hit or miss. Sometimes he wants it, sometimes he doesn't. But he's really excited to try.
So tonight, he nursed around 3 pm. Took a nap. Woke up. Wouldn't nurse again. By 7 pm, he was exhausted. He's now asleep.
I know he will wake again in just a little bit and probably eat. But, what other options did I have? Should I have given him solids?
I have a slow let-down these days.
I kept moving him from side to side to try to encourage the let down.
He bit me - that was not a nice moment.
My period started today.
I have a horrible sore throat.
My husband really wanted me to give him the solids. I refused.
Was I wrong?
What would you do?
Please help me.
