My son has always been a great nurser until recently...he just doesn't really seem interested anymore! I always breastfeed him before offering solids, but he loses interest quickly. He REALLY does a good job eating his fruits/veggies/cereal, and almost seems to prefer solids over nursing. I know he really needs the nutrition from my breastmilk though, so how do I make sure he's getting enough? I'm mixing breastmilk into his food, too, in hopes that the additional milk will help. He nurses 8-10 min per side, 4x a day. Does that sound about right to you other moms with babies this age? Thanks for any advice!
