Re: 16 month eating less solids on weekend
with the PP. No need to restrict breastmilk intake- nursing on demand doesn't make a baby picky, and it's okay for the milk/solids equation to tilt in different ways at different times. Don't fall into the trap of offering only foods your LO likes (the carbs), because that is a good way to foster picky eating habits.
That all being said, at 16 months it is okay to say "we'll nurse a little later" or "you can nurse very quickly but then it's time to sit down at the table" or to enforce similar nursing manners. You can't expect nursing manners to work 100% perfectly with such a young toddler, but it's okay to start teaching them!
