Re: Help! My 10 month old is barely nursing!

I agree w/ more nursing & fewer solids. If you think your supply has dropped, then gradually shift the balance over a couple weeks. Your supply will come back up. Drink extra water & eat some oatmeal/oatmeal cookies to help it along, & make sure you get plenty of rest.

My 10 month old gets pretty demanding w/ food too. I nurse first/often. I give him nibbles so he's participating, but not full meals unless we're out to eat. I also plan it so we're not always eating right in front of him (like our lunch is usually during his nap). If I offered him 3 meals/day + snacks, I think he'd happily eat it. (He's healthy--10 months; ~ 21 lbs, steadily in the 60th percentile)
