I'm new to the forum but have learnt a lot already just by reading through some incredibly informative threads. So a big thank you!
Not sure if this should be in the BLW or Breastfeeding section...
My DS is 7 months old and has taken to BLW like a duck to water. He absolutely loves food! We started him on solids at 6 months of age. Two weeks into BLW he dropped from 3 hourly breast feeds to 4 hourly (day and night). I was absolutely fine with this as it was expected. However, the past few days DS has decided to go at least 5 hours during the day between breast feeds (but 4 hourly at night still). I offer many times a day and he will push me away, scratching, pinching and crying. This means he is not having milk before solids as i thought he was supposed to? He does have a cold and stuffy nose atm so maybe this is the cause?
My question is... Is this normal with BLW or should DS still be breastfeeding more frequently during the day? How does this compare to your breastfeeding journey with BLW? I really don't want to wean any time soon and i am concerned my milk supply may decrease. Should i be pumping?
