DS is almost 22 months old. We've had a great nursing relationship (meaning he loves it, I love it, family tolerates it, daycare doesn't complain about it, etc...) Anyway, he refuses most solids- anything that is not a cracker or a cookie. For a long time, I had the mentality that when he gets hungry, he will eat, and that he needs the breastmilk for nourishment. Recently, though, someone said something interesting to me: "How can you expect him to be hungry during the day when he nurses all night?" And this is exactly the opposite of what I had been thinking.
What is your take? Do you think that an almost-two-year-old can survive on just the BM? Do you think that I need to restrict him more (we are once in the AM, once when we get home from work/daycare, bedtime, and 3-4 times at night). Or do I just continue to offer him healthful meals and snacks and hope that one day it all clicks?
We had him evaluated by a feeding therapist who, IMHO, read way to far into things and came up with a whole slew of problems ranging from speech and language impairments to social anxiety, to separation axiety and severe feeding delays. She suggested we contact Early Intervention for a complete analysis and 3x a week therapy at home or daycare.
Anyone out there with a similar experience?
