I've posted many times about how laid-back my daughter is about nursing. Basically, I proactively offer nursing because she cues so infrequently. She currently is at the breast 9-10 times per 24 hours. However, the past several days she has very obviously not wanted 2-3 of those sessions. Since she is getting older, should I start offering less?
On a related note, I am on domperidone and contacted Dr. Newman about weaning from it. He recommends waiting until baby is well established on solids before attempting to wean from Dom, just in case milk supply drops - so you can use solids temporarily to hold baby until milk can be boosted back up. Well, my daughter will be 9 months old on Thursday and takes no measurable amounts of solids. She'll accept 2-3 bites of yogurt or sweet potatoes, but that's it. I know breastmilk is everything before 1 and food is just for fun and practice, but in this specific situation (given what I mentioned about her refusing BF so often), should I try to ramp up solids and cut back a bit on BF so I have a chance of weaning from the Dom?
Her appetite seems almost low at times, so I'm really curious about what her weight check will show at her 9 month check up. It's in 2 weeks.
Thanks for your advice!
