So my LO is almost 9 months. We started solids at about 6.5. Stayed with one meal a day until about 8 months, started two meals a day about a month ago. Her appetite for solids varies from day to day, but is never that big. Sometimes she seems completely disinterested. And I would say she never seems "hungry" for them. I still nurse pretty frequently, and I almost always nurse before solids (about a half hour before) and offer after. I don't really nurse on-demand, I try to stick with somewhat of a schedule, but I never make her wait to eat. In fact, I would say I feed her before she's hungry, and sometimes I wonder if I am feeding her too often. She usually goes about 2.5 to 3 hours, but has been known to go 4 without a problem. At nine months should I be doing something different to encourage her to increase her solid intake? I know BM is the best thing, but I am looking to the future here. I would like to have her down to nursing just a few times a day around the one year mark. I don't necessarily want to wean, but I could use some freedom and flexibility in my life. Also, on a completely separate note, has anyone given their LO's tahini? Is it safe, how did you serve it, did they like it? Thanks for any guidance!
