    Default increase in solids once they wean?

    Hi. Did your lo increase solid intake by crazy, crazy amounts when milk (breast) intake decreased? Alasdair eats really well, and has for about three months now, but in the last few days ---since we've been cutting down on breastmilk--- he's been eating so much more. Much more than I "thought" my breastmilk was providing. I hope that makes sense.
    thanks.

    Many mom's find that toddlers that age start upping their intake, and couple that with less breastmilk, totally normal!
    Your breastmilk has LOTS of fat and calories so that translates into a lot of food!

    Breastfeeding is an instinctual and natural act, but it is also an art that is learned day by day.
