I'm not quite sure how to ask this question, so forgive me if it doesn't seem very clear.
What is breastfeeding supposed to be like at 7 mos, 9 mos, 1 year, etc.? I mean, what is the progression of it? For example, when DD was a newborn she ate all the time. But then she got much more efficient. Since she's started solids she isn't as interested in nursing and, a lot of the time, I feel like I'm forcing it on her. Is she still supposed to be nursing every two (or so) hours? Right now our days go like this: 5:30-bf, 7:30-bf, 9:00-oatmeal and fruit, 10:00-bf, 12:30-bf, 2:00-bf, 4:00-bf, 6:00-veggies and brown rice, 8:00-bf and down for the night. A lot of the time DD pops off and is clearly wanting to get down to play. And she shows absolutely NO interest after dinner before bed. Am I trying to push it too much? She dropped a lot in her weight percentile (95% at 2 mos, 85% at 4 mos, 59% at 6 mos) so I'm just really conscientious of her eating. Now, I know that weight charts are based on ff infants, bf infants bulk up faster and they normally drop in weight percentile when the become more active/start solids, but it doesn't help my worrying.
So, are you still with me? What is our bf-ing supposed to look like?
