    My LO is 8.5 months old and has been doing this since she was 6 months. I was extremely worried and took her to see everyone. Her Paediatrician explained to me that as long as she is eating and drinking water well and that she is developing normally, not to worry at all. He also said that self weaning is only usually an issue when neurological issues are at play where a child is unable to feed themselves. Hunger and thirst are survival instincts and your LO will be getting all they need from solids. This was told to be only 3 days ago so pretty current. I'm no longer an absolute mess about my baby refusing milk feeds. If you worried, maybe go to you GP?

    Thanks everyone, I'm thinking it might just be a phase, he's been a bit better today, he's only had 2 feeds since waking up but both were good feeds, he wasn't fussy at all. If he is ready to drop a feed I guess he will whether I like it or not but I hope he's not ready to wean yet because I'm certainly not ready

    Self weaning is very rare under 18 months and is generally a gradual thing, I'll post some links for you
