I'd appreciate any help or opinions about this.
My daughter is nine months old. She has been exclusively breastfed (except for a few bottles at the beginning) until six months, when we began trying to introduce solid foods. She has never liked solid food, though I introduce her to everything I can (one at a time). She had real trouble with gagging at the beginning, whcih she now seems to be over, but she's still mostly uninterested. There are a few things she will taste, and sometimes she seems to enjoy, but after a few nibbles, she turns her nose up. She hardly eats solid food at all - maybe half a tablespoon full a day. She will take a cup, but mostly just for fun (she doesn't even drink a full ounce per day from the cup). So, almost all of her nourishment still comes from breastmilk, and I nurse on demand. And she is demanding! She doesn't use a dummy, so needs to nurse to be comforted.
I would, ideally, like to be feeding just in the morning and at night (and during the night, as necessary), but I don't know how to do it. I would like to continue to nurse her until at least a year but the pace that we're going at now has got to slow down.
I've read that I should cut out a feeding, but her feedings have no clear beginning or end, so I wouldn't know how to do this.
Does anyone else know how to wean a demanding nine month old who nurses on demand, doesn't use a dummy, and isn't really interested in a cup or solid food?
