Hey guys, I couldn't find much info on this anywhere.
My baby boy is now 9 months and of a healthy weight(not sure, we are due for a check-up in 2 weeks. Six month visit he was 16lbs.150z).
He is a huge eater and has always been. He still eats as frequently as a little newborn, most times every 1 1/2 to 2 hours! it does not matter whether it is solids or breast milk, by two hours he is hungry! I sometimes even breastfeed a full sitting and then follow with solids! It doesn't matter what I give him or really how much, his stomach just seems to empty based on the passage of time. Anyway, I am getting the feeling lately my milk is doing NOTHING for him, like its water, like I'm the personal water cooler. I am very confident my milk supply is adequate, and I am of good health. Could the composition just be super low in fat at this point? I know by a year they say it is not nutrionally adequate to be the sole food, but maybe it happens in some women's milk faster than others? Or is it possible he is nursing for comfort and telling me he is done before he is full so that I should follow with solids after every bf session? He is waking 2-4x a night to feed still. He eats a huge variety food, does not turn down anything, and I am cutting down on pureed food and giving him a lot more healthy finger foods and more hearty choices, hoping he will stay full awhile!
What's going on? The only thing I found online was related to night feeding, and it said to stick mainly to one breast so the fat content is higher and baby sleeps longer. Should I start weaning? Thanks!
