DS is refusing his milk...

So my DS is now 9months old. He was EBF until a little past 6months until he was showing interest in solids. Anyways, with my ODS I would nurse him (or he would get a bottle if I was working) before he would get his solids. That is what I am currently doing with my YDS. However, lately when I nurse him (or try nursing him I should say), he will only nurse briefly and then push me away. I thought that he was having a nursing stikes or weaning himself, but I know that babies tend to not self-wean before the age of 1. Anyways, he is pretty much doing the same thing when he gets his milk from a bottle. He isn't drinking much AT ALL. I know that in the first year of life a babies main source of nutrition is suppose to be breastmilk/formula (whatever they are getting).

Is there soemthing that I can do, or just keep doing what I am doing. He won't drink the milk, but he will eat solids, but I know he needs the milk. Should I feed him less solids until he starts drinking the milk more? Any help/advice would be great, thanks!

Yes, stop the solids for a few days or really limit them until he ups his milk intake again.

You are exactly right milk is way more important then carrots, lol way to go!
