Here we are again....have been trying to give DD solids on and off since 6 months but she will have hardly anything to do with them!! She only has 2 teeth right now (1 year old) and didn't even eat dry solids until about 10 months. Even now, at 12 months, she has little interest in any other food aside from mama's milk!! She will occasionally eat crackers, rice rusks, Cheerios, and similar dry foods that she can feed herself, but the only other thing she will eat is diced chicken and cheeses, she does not like veggies or fruits at all it seems.
This is normally not a problem, but since I have started law school she has been going to daycare for about 6 hours a day and will drink 1-2 bags of EBM while at daycare. Her teachers say she nibbles at solids during meal time but never eats much at all.
I have been sick with the stomach bug all weekend and have not had time to pump...I have 2 bags of EBM left in the freezer for tomorrow, but other than that we are "broke"!! I can usually pump about 1/2-1 bag of milk per day, so I might be able to catch up...but...what do I do aside from that?! How do I get her to eat fruits and veggies along with BM?
She has also been nursing A LOT more than usual this weekend...waking up at all hours to nurse and signing for milk probably 10+ times per day...although when she is at the breast, she drinks little and sort of just lingers there (unless she is actually hungry I guess). Is this because she needs more "mommy time" in lieu of daycare during the week? Could it be because she is teething?
I am just really confused and do not want my sweet girl going hungry at daycare!! Anyone have suggestions?
