You aren't eating enough. That's why you're dizzy. Sounds like he's sapping all of your energy. You need to eat 500 calories more than a non breastfeeding mom, and if you're feeding that much it could be the cause. Also you need A LOT of water. A ton.

Anything you eat is now fair game for your LO. Table food, finger food, steamed veggies, you name it. I'm sure he'll be excited to try new things! Getting him off is not going to be easy. You are just going to have to cut down the amount you feed each day. I wouldn't pull him cold turkey though. Just one day at a time.
