Hi everyone, I am looking for some guidance on beginning the weaning process with my 10 month old daughter. She's a breastfeeding champ. We have had absolutely zero issues with breastfeeding and we both have loved the experience.
She hasn't quite taken to food just yet. In fact, she rarely eats any puree food from me. She throws a huge fit when I try to spoon feed her. Has anyone else had this same experience? I feel like she will not eat from me because I am the one with the boobs! She will eat from her teachers at daycare like a pro, though.
I have her mainly eating whatever we eat. But not in significant amounts. About a month ago, she dropped her daily breastmilk intake at daycare from 21 oz to 10 oz. And this week she only took 9 oz. They feed her lunch and breakfast so she is getting some solids.
I have noticed recently that she is only interested in nursing sometimes. Last night she stayed with my parents and didn't take a bottle before bed. She just went to sleep! Is this normal? Should I be concerned? Am I doing this right? Why don't babies come with manuals? Haha! The true question is: can she be self-weaning at 10 months or is this just a phase?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I want to make sure my sweet girl is getting all her nutrition, hydration, and vitamins that she needs during this weaning process.
