May I jump in on this thread? I have a concern along similar lines as the question posted here, and need some advice about supply and demand.
My 8 mo son was exclusively breastfed for 6 mos then gradually weaned down to partial BF (wake, bedtime, and nighttime) with formula bottles for other feedings. From 4.5 mos age he was also taking in solids and liked everything that was offered. Up until one week ago, he readily took B-milk, Formula, bottles or breast, and solid feedings, no matter if warmed, cool, whatever flavor, etc. Now he is boycotting all solid foods from me, and isn't too happy about the bottles, though he takes them because he has no other choice. My supply is way down since we have been doing only 2x a day BF, and now it seems to be lessening still. He has two teeth, and didn't refuse food when either came in. He is not ill. He is alert and happy, and here's the kicker, he takes solids just fine from his sitter (1-2 times a week), refuses it only from me all of a sudden, and is begging to nurse a lot more.
Is he trying to reverse the weaning process for some reason? Is he anxious now that my supply is way way down and he is trying to get it back up? For what other reason could he be regressing and what do I do about it?
I'll post a question on the weaning forum too.
