Re: Is my 8-month-old weaning?
Since your baby is still so young, I think this is one of those times when you don't follow the baby's lead. Babies in the 8-10 month range are notorious for nursing strikes. And you probably could wean your LO quite easily at this point, and just feed him solids. But it's rare for babies to consume a healthy, balanced diet of solids until they are much older. And because the baby's brain, body, and immune system are growing and developing so fast right now, you want to keep feeding him ideal nutrition, i.e. breastmilk.
If your pump output is going to waste, how about feeding baby purees thinned out with expressed milk?
