I'm worried that my daughter isn't eating enough food, but I want to start cutting out some of her breastfeeding sessions. Any advice?
My daughter is one year old now and neither of us is ready for weaning, but I am ready to not be nursing her every 3 hours around the clock...! I've already instituted a "no nursing between 11pm and 4am" policy, during which we'll soothe her back to sleep but not nurse her back to sleep. But other than that she's pretty much nursing every few hours. And she doesn't love solids - I can get her to eat a few tablespoons of fruit, and she will try other foods and sometimes eat up to a few tablespoons at a sitting, but I'm just concerned that if I start to cut out other nursing sessions with her not really so keen on eating she won't be getting the nutrition she needs. We've introduced all types of foods by now, and I think it's just a matter of preference.
If I try to feed her and she is hungry and wants to nurse, she just gets all upset and signs for the boob, and won't settle down to eat food, so that has made it tricky to offer food before nursing.
Any tips greatly appreciated!!!
