Hi. Is there anyone here familiar with extended, exclusive nursing?
The problem is my third son, now 12 mo. old. He refuses to eat anything but breastmilk, and he's very small for his age. The ped said he looked fine @ 9 mo., albeit small, but I didn't I didn't tell him he was still breastfeeding exclusively. I nursed my other two boys exclusively for about this long, but they were fat, and they weren't as adamant about refusing food.
He is sleeping well (about 9 hours at night), he's happy, he's cruising, crawling, and climbing, and saying a couple of words, and everything seems fine, except that he hates food so much.
When should I insist that he eat food?
