My son is 15 months now and I'm so glad I have been able to nurse him this long without difficulties but I'm getting a little confused at how much he is nursing. At 12 months he was nursing 3 times a day and to me it looked like he was losing interest and would soon be weaning himself but this past month he's gone up to nursing about 6 times a day. I was feeding him solid foods every two hours because he was a little skinny according to the doctor but because it would get me so frustrated, and make me an evil mommy now I space his feedings so that he does eat a reasonable amount without me having to bully him. He's eating about 4 times a day and eats everything great, veggies, soups, fruits...But since I refuse to chase him around and around he doesn't eat quite as much as I would love him to. Could this be the reason he's nursing so much? Is he hungry for more solids -and if so why is it so damn difficult to get him to eat!!?? (sore subject)
I don't mind nursing him on demand, but it just that lately he's constantly asking for "more, more, more"(that's how he asks for milk)...
Thanks..sorry about the rant
