My daughter will be 1 next week and the past several days has decreased her nursing and solids intake. She's never been a demanding nursling and I've always proactively offered nursing to her. She's typically offered the breast 8-10 times a day, including 2-3 times overnight when she wakes or starts to stir (we cosleep). She's also always been super distractible, so she nurses best when sleepy or asleep. (I already do the quiet, dark room, etc.) She's shown little to no interest in solids, with the exception of meals here or there where she'll eat more than just a few bites. I offer solids after nursing 4-5 times a day and she usually eats just 2-3 bites and then is finished. She recently started refusing most things on a spoon (yogurt, applesauce, etc.) and prefers to self-feed, but still only eats a few bites before she is finished. She eats a pretty good variety of things (sweet potatoes, avocado, ground turkey, buttered toast, oatmeal, etc.), just a miniscule amount. I offer water in a straw cup with solids and she maybe drinks a couple sips.
I suppose my concern is that the past several days she's been having much shorter nursing sessions (except the asleep ones are the same) and has all but refused solids. She's on the verge of walking and is babbling up a storm, so could this be related to a big developmental jump about to happen? She's also been biting me, so I wonder if she's about to get another tooth. That's usually the only time she bites...unless she's bored or not hungry and I'm offering to nurse.
She's already a petite girl, so I'm always concerned when she isn't eating well. She's almost always happy and is very active and engaged, but it's like she could practically exist on air!
