Hello! I'm sure this question has been asked a number of times!! My nine month old has been breastfed exclusively since birth, until recently, he starting getting solids... probably for the past 2-3 months. He has slowly become uninterested in breastfeeding. I thought initially he just became a more efficient eater but I don't think any baby can eat all they need to in 2 or 3 minutes. I know he is teething so could that be a reason why he won't eat?
It's kind of confusing because he will suck for a little bit and then turn away and cry a little and then go back and then turn away and until he finally really upsets himself so we stop. So it almost seems like he still wants to eat. Another detail I should mention is I'm pregnant. I'm 5 months along already. Maybe this is a point during my pregnancy where my milk changes and he doesn't like the taste.
And lastly I'm worried that I am giving him too much solids. He might be filling up on that instead of breastmilk. His pediatrician told me to feed until he doesn't want anymore and that seems to turn into to quite a bit. He is eating 2 of the 2.5oz Gerber containers fruit/veggies 3 times a day. And honestly he would eat more if I would give it to him.
Well now that I officially rambled on... I hope someone can help a lost mother :-(
