Hi - DS is 8 months old in a week or so. Lately nursing sessions are getting very short to the point where he doesn't empty the breast. He's on for 3-4 minutes one side and 2 minutes on the other. He seems content just wants to go play. With solids he has weeks where he eats very well but most of the time he's not really that interested eating maybe 2-2.5 ounces of veggies/fruits, 3 TBS of cereal 3 times a day.
My question is how do i get him to nurse better? Right now we nurse, play, then sleep. Should I start doing wake, play then nurse right before nap when he is more calm? I just don't want supply to drop very much. He doesn't take a bottle at daycare so gets his fluid from me if i can come nurse or from cereal.
Also what else can i expect in the next few months. He wants to learn to walk and stand all the time. I'm guessing once he learns to stand on his own he will rarely want to nurse with me.
