Thread: Dropped feeding

    Question Dropped feeding

    Hi, my baby girl is 8 months old and has suddenly, for the last 3-4 nights, started refusing her last nursing of the day before the after-bath-nighttime nurse. She eats 3 "meals" a day and has a biscuit or mini rice cake in between. She eats a really healthy balanced diet and mostly feeds herself (like baby-led weaning, except I do spoon feed rice cereal and oatmeal!) so I don't think she's being over fed. Just wondering if it was normal for her to drop this last feeding? Has she started to substitute her dinner with this evening nursing?

    It's possible that she's so full from dinner that there's no more room for milk. Are you nursing her right before feeding her solids? That's a good way to increase milk intake for a kid who is suddenly really into solid foods.
    Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
    Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
