My 8 month old son is in the 69th percentile for weight, he eats three meals of solids a day, and has some juice or water during the day. He seems to like snacking in the late afternoon (I think for comfort rather than hunger), and I am wondering how often is best to breastfeed him. He could still nurse every 3 hours during the day if I let him, and he does not nurse long before he is satisfied. Also, would you suggest that I breastfeed him before or after his solid meals? He used to sleep for 9 hours straight at night, and now he barely sleeps 6 hours before he is up and wanting to breastfeed, which makes me think that he does not get enough milk before bed.
