I always get good advice here and was hoping to get some feedback as to how we're doing about food and breastfeeding. A normal day for us is as follows (give or take a half hour):
7am wake up - BF
8:30 goat/sheep yogurt or applesauce (switched every other day)
10 BF and then nap till 11/11:30
12-12:30 fresh fruit, mushed up with some pieces (banana, apricot, etc)
2:30-3 BF with second nap till 4/4:30
5:30 dinner (organic baby food - meat and veggies, or tiny pasta with goat ricotta (no cow produced dairy yet), sometimes I add pureed veggies or legumes
7pm BF and bedtime
Night wakings with BF usually at 11pm, and then once more before morning, usually around 3am.
That makes six BFs a day, and sometimes an extra one gets worked in between 1st and 2nd nap. I have been nursing only one side at a time since I had oversupply in the beginning and had to do block feeding. Right boob almost always leaks when I nurse on the left, but not vice versa (even after all these months!)
My main questions to you guys are: Is this about right for her age? Did/does your 10 month old eat more solids or less or BF more or less than mine? I watch the clock to make sure she BFs enough as she is a really easy baby and doesn't really ask for it. When I ask her if she wants her "milkies" she does let me know though. I wonder if I should be feeding her a proper lunch instead of just fruit. Her intake at dinner seems to have increased. She has gotten much more curious about what we are eating in the last few weeks, but when I give her little pieces she will just play with them and does not feed herself yet. She will open her mouth and gladly eat tiny tastes though.
Also, do you think I'm at risk for decreasing my supply by just feeding with one boob per feeding? She seems satiated and pops off smiling and happy, but I want to keep BFing after she turns one so I don't want to accidentally diminish my milk.
I am a first time mom but I don't have family or many friends close by as we moved to a new city just before I got pregnant - so I need help from you guys!
Thanks very much in advance,
(Btw her weight is on track, diaper output is (very!) good, and she is reaching her milestones on time and is almost walking already!)
