Question for all you moms out there,
Do I have to offer nursing first before meals or can I just go right to feeding solids, then nurse after?
My DS is 8 1/2 mos old just now really eating solids at 8 months. He'll eat 1-2 ounces twice a day if I offer them first, then nurse after. If I do the reverse he won't eat hardly at all.
Our schedule is this:
7am wake up, nurse
9:30 nurses well, then nap
12 noon solids, then nurses (not much)
1:30 nurses well, then nap
4:30 nurses somes
6:30 - 7 nurses well, then bedtime
nurses around 8:30, 11, then sleeps til 5 or 6 am *Usually except lately I think he's doing a growth spurt and nursing a lot more a night (we cosleep still)
Any suggestions would be so appreciated. If I nurse him first before solids, he won't eat. But he's only eating 2-3 ounces total solids per day.
