My son is 5 1/2 months old. It seems that he is just not that interested in eating. He will not allow me to nurse him unless he's asleep. He sucks his thumb alot now and it seems that he would rather do that than nurse. For the past couple of days he has only nursed for a few minutes at a time and goes about three or four hours and sometimes longer in between feedings. I don't know if I should be concerned because he is actually off the charts in his weight(20lbs) and is a very happy little boy. The only time he fusses is when he is tired. I just wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this with their child.
Also, I know I'm supposed to start solids when he turns 6 months, but I'm afraid if I do that then he won't want to nurse at all.
