Re: Can low iron cause low appetite?
That sort of distractible behavior is par for the course with older babies. They are just too busy to nurse. And solids are still more of a game. Does your LO nurse more at night that during the day? She might be taking in a lot of her calories overnight, leaving the day free for learning, exploring, playing, etc.!
