Hi Ladies, I need some advice about my 16m old eating habits. She nurses on demand as always, including 1-2 times a night still. I've never kept track of the number of nursings, but she is easily getting 5-6 a day including a few that are clearly just comfort nursing without much actual eating. At home we have done BLW and she has always been a good eater. We have been fairly relaxed, just making sure to give her variety and letting her choose what to eat.
She has been going to daycare for about three months now and she eats really well at school. They feed for two fruit snacks a day plus lunch and dinner which is usually rice, beans, and some form of protein plus veggies.
My concern is that both dh and I have noticed she isn't eating much on the weekends anymore. She will often completely refuse what we offer her and when she does choose to eat, she eats almost exclusively carbs. Pancakes I make, crackers, toast etc. I'm very torn between letting her choose and making sure she is eating what she needs.
Today she refused to eat and screamed and cried when i told her she had to eat something before she had any more milk. Is this the right move? Should I always give in to her request for milk, even if she means she is not eating solid foods? I'm worried she will become a "bad" or "picky" eater.
TIA for any advice!
