    If you wish to gently wean, I suggest these two books: How Weaning Happens and The Nursing Mothers Guide to Weaning. If baby is not eating lots of solids by the time you wean you may need to talk to your pediatrician about what would be appropriate supplementation. Also, just FYI, there is no need to completely wean. If you no longer wish to pump at work, you could continue to nurse when at home. This is called partial weaning.

    Generally speaking, as long as baby is healthy and gaining appropiately it can be perfectly normal for a baby to not be into solids yet. As far as why baby stopped taking solids and just wants to nurse, maybe bb no longer likes what is being offered, or how it is being offered. For example, if you have been spoon feeding, maybe try foods baby can pick up and feed herself.

    It could also be that baby is not feeling well, or is teething, whatever, and just wants that delicous milk for now.
