DS is almost 9 months old and loves his solids, but the last few days he has been pretty much refusing to breastfeed unless he is starving, or half asleep.
He has his first morning feed without too many dramas although once he is properly awake he doesn't seem to want to feed, he will latch on for about 20 seconds then let go, and that will go on until he starts getting cranky and refuses all together. This has been the case for all his feeds after the first one, unless he is feeding to sleep (which he rarely wants to do anymore).
I usually try to do breast milk first then maybe an hour or so later he has solids. Should I be giving him less solid food? Today he barely had anything for lunch (he had refused all his feeds again so I thought I'd hold back on the solids and see if he'd feed) and later in the afternoon he finally got cranky and decided to have a feed but he must have been starving by then.
I went back to work recently, only a couple of shifts each week at most but this weekend I was away from him for about 5 hours each day from Friday through to Monday. He only usually has one bottle of EBM in that time usually and one solid meal, and I feed and pump as soon as I get home. But I'm worried that having a bottle every day has affected him somehow.
Any suggestions? He's way too young to wean.
