We've been doing child led weaning since 6 months, with limited success. He's gone through phases of being a good eater, but 'lousy eater who prefers boob' seems to be the primary narrative. His pedi wants to give him til 15 months to resume gaining, and implement PediaSure if he's still lagging.
And I hate the idea. She suggested cutting down on nursing to force him to eat high calorie solids, but that's so...not what we've been going for as a parenting philosophy thus far. Problem is, lil man doesn't do well with dairy, hates most carbs, and isn't crazy about fruit. He wants meat, veggies, and potatoes...I doubt he'd touch pediasure if I were to offer it, which I'd prefer to avoid.
Help! What can I do to increase calories consumed? We already nurse every few hours around the clock in addition to three solid meals a day.
