So, my 8 month old son was introduced to solids at 6 months old. He eats at 7am, 11am, 3pm, and 7pm. I give him BM at 7am, solids and BM at 11, solid and BM at 3, and then only BM at 7pm. Well, he's gotten to where he doesn't hardly eat any BM during the solids meals. Today he didn't eat any BM at the 11am meal, so at 3 I gave him BM first and then solids. He only at 3 oz of BM and then all of his solids. I'm not sure if this is okay or not. Do they start to wean themselves? He's only 8 months old and I thought that he needs BM until at least a year. So I'm not really sure what to do. I can't force him to eat, and he's already in the 10% of his weight in his age group. He's doesn't act hungry at all. Suggestions?
Oh I guess I should mention that he's teething too, which might be some of his reasoning for not eating much. Not sure if that's it or not.
Thanks in advance!
