I have made it 8 months so far with only EBF my son. However, over the past week he has started to refuse his mid-day (lunch) feeding. He is such an active little boy and does not want to sit down and nurse. He nurses 2-3 times per night and about four times from 2-8pm. His diaper output is good because he gets water plus solids throughout the day. I was not too concerned throughout the week as it was just one feeding....however, today he didn't eat two nursing sessions. I pumped a bottle for him at noon and he sucked it down because he was so hungry but he enjoyed that so much because he could watch everything around him while he had his milk. I work part time and two days per week I am gone 7-8 hours while the other days I only gone 5 hours at most. I nurse him right before I go to work and as soon as I come home...but I am getting concerned because I noticed he is not drinking as much when I send him to the babysitters and he is not nursing as much anymore. Everything we have done so far is Baby Led. He really likes solids and does well with them so I am thinking he is starting to wean some of his feedings. Am I on the right track of thinking???? I do not have any experienced breast feeders in my family to turn to as I am the first one to do it let alone for this long.
Thanks in advance ladies...you have all helped me get this far.
