I need an advice or assurance of my current situation please.
My almost 13 mo son has been ebf and we started BLW from 7mo.
However until now my son only eats very very little despite all the variety of food & snacks offered. I tried 3 meals on high chair and he will take 3-4 bites and play & toss all the food. I tried pureed, finger, different cuts etc etc.
I am still feeding every 4-5 hours and is immensely pressured by my mom, my in laws, my friends even the nurse!! Everyone told me I have to stop feeding him milk so he will be hungry and eat more. I suppose I am in the circle where I saw him eating so little & thought that's fine I will bfeed him later so he wont be starving. My baby is lean but not underweight (20th percentile in height & weight), walking and met all his milestones.
I am just sick of everyone keep telling me their kids at same age eat lots & lots. They look at me weird as I still bfeed him! And then all the pressures that my baby doesnt get enough vitamins & nutrients from bfeed beyond 1 yr. I am just confused is this true ? And should I reduce my bfeed so my baby will get hungry & eat soluds? (Dont offer breast).
Thanks a lot for your advise moms.
