    Default regression in solid intake

    My DS is 10.5 mos old, and has been on solids since the 5 mos mark. We've gradually built up, and now it's on the downward spiral. I'm not sure what's happened, but his solid intake has dropped noticeably and his nursing has increased. He doesn't seem to have much interest in solids anymore. Any thoughts?

    pretty normal
    they all go in stages where you think that they are living on air!

    just keep offering
    its up to them to eat it.

    They go through stages where they need more mommy time & will increase nursing. At this age breastmilk is more important than solids. Toddlers go through a stage of seeming to eat nothing too, it's all normal.

    Happens to us everytime DD's cutting a tooth and the couple times she was sick. Totally normal! Trust me, if my 20+ lb. super-active, skinny-minney toddler can survive on nothing but BM for a couple weeks at a time, your LO will be fine!
