So my son is 11 months next week. He gets two meals a day; the first after nursing in the morning and the second in the evening when my husband and I have dinner. I limit his food to about 3 oz since he is quite a pig and would eat until engorged... I let him eat on his own mostly fruits, veggies, homemade bread, and I spoon feed a little homemade yogurt in the morning. He doesn't get any other fluids on a regular basis, just a couple spoonfulls of water at a restaurant or some fruit smoothie if i am havig one. He always clears his tray nomatter what i give him. He has started begging for food when I eat lunch or when my husband has food and its not dinner. We gave him a taste of this or that to begin with and now he just hangs out as close as he can get gesturing and entreating us to give him more.
Should I add a lunch or snack to his day? I don't have any interference with my supply (I have breast constriction /hypoplasia so I only make so much and when he has drained both sides I attach a sns with my donor mom's milk to the tune of 24 oz a day of breastmilk total) since it is low and he nurses before and after eating no problem. Do I just have a little glutton on my hands or what? I intend to nurse him until around 2, +or-, but it seems like he will be eating a ton of solids soon if I let him. I am worried he will wean early if I give him any more food, my mom (who nursed 4 out of 5 kids successfully, the youngest -me, until almost 3) says he wants to eat more solids and I should let him.
