My Little One just turned One and lately he seems to be less interested in eating solids and more interested in nursing. Usually, he demands to nurse after eating his solids (which are getting harder and harder to make him eat), but today he skipped nursing after his lunch and went on playing. I decided not to ask him if he wanted to since I would like over the next few months to get down to 2-3 nursing sessions a day (currently at 4-6). I go see the Dr. in a few days for his well baby checkup and I'd like to know what is considered "normal" number of nursing sessions for a 12-month-old. I just switched doctors b/c the one we had gave me NO HELP regarding nutrition. I've pretty much been winging it.
I guess I'm also worried if he's ok on calorie intake. He's eating things like toast, cheese, PB and Tuna Sandwiches and sometimes he'll eat an apple. But if I put chunks of banana or carrots, etc in front of him, he ignores it and cries to get out of his highchair. So since he's refusing fruit and veggie chunks, I still feed him out of the jar... shouldn't he be eating more table foods??
Thanks for any advice!
