Love the title
If I were you I'd try to offer more often, rather than less often. My little one got really fussy around 9 months - I think it's a common time for a nursing strike too.
Just to give you an idea - my little one nursed about 12 times in 24 hours at 10 months. He nurses 6-8 times in 24 hours now at 22 months.
The more often you nurse, the more milk you'll make, the less frustrated baby gets at the breast, the (hopefully) more baby will...
