So, working on getting Baby to sleep through the night (via tips from the No-Cry sleep training) and have run into a bit of a rut:  Baby would rather play all day with next to zero interest in eating, then has to nurse every two hours all night.

 

Any ideas on how to get her to nurse during the day again?

I wish I could help you!  I have no idea.  Your baby really doesn't get hungry all day long?  How long has that been going on?  What goes on during baby's day, are you available for nursing?  How old is baby?

It has been going on about a week.  She is 9 months. She nurses once during the day, maybe twice, eats a bit of baby food, and plays.

Ahhh, so she is eating during the day, just not very often.  I remember my kids going through that around that age.  It will pass.  There's not much you can do except offer the breast when you think it's been awhile and tummy must be empty.

I'm glad to hear it's a phase!  I can survive that.
