Dd didn't gain anything between about 9 months and 22 months and she was fine.
She nurses about 5 times a day: morning, before first nap, before second nap, bedtime and once (sometimes twice) at night. She associates nursing with sleep and has been refusing the breast at any other times during the day. She only nurses for a couple of minutes until she falls asleep, and I really feel she's not getting enough. I believe my supply is dropping too.
She has very little interst in solids, whether in puree or finger-food form. She does seem to prefer the finger food, but chokes all the time, so I can't give her anything unless it's cut up in teeny, tiny bits. She'll eat about a total of two ounces of solids a day (guessing).
She's been stuck at 20 pounds for the last 2 months, although it's creeping up slowly. She's very active. This is down from the 95th percentile at 4 months. She used to be so much bigger than her peers, and now they are all catching up.
She is following a curve on the WHO breastfed chart, but it seems to be leveling a little.
I'm just worried that her lack of nursing is causing my supply to drop. I don't know how to get her to nurse more, and her lack of interest in solids concerns me.
