Re: 9 mnth old has 2 breast feeds a day + solids - is that enough milk?
My 9 mth old will only nurse 3 times a day, I would do more but she refuses. So we give her breast milk in a straw cup at lunch and dinner, she still doesn't eat breakfast. She usually takes about 6 oz total from the cup per day. While I wish she would nurse more, she just won't unless she is falling asleep due to severe reflux. We still don't feed her breakfast and she nurses at 10, 2, and 8. She is over 22 lbs so I think she is getting enough milk. We also give yogurt and cottage cheese at meals to help. 8 times a day sounds like way too much, even DD1 who loved to nurse, only nursed 6 times in a day at this age.
Mom to Abigail, born May 3rd, 2007 (self-weaned at 27 mths) and Charlotte, born Nov. 24th, 2009. Both reflux babies and EBF. Charlotte weighs 31 lbs at 26 mths.
