Does that include nights? He always gets booby before he gets solids for sure. I sometimes do not even bother with solids depending on if he seems full or not from milk.

Like someone else said above he may decide to nurse more, or more often, at different times of the day/night to make up for it. Either way, if he needs it he'll nurse.
Whenever he fusses I offer booby first. He has been getting at least one let down per side each time. He used to drink one boob then an hour later or so drink the other. Now he seems to drink both boobs in one sitting and go longer (2-3 hours) in between feedings. He definately night nurses, which does not bother me a bit.
