Hi, I hope this is the right place to post this. I have a 10 month old ds who is bf. He is also eating solids (mostly table/finger foods now) 3X a day. The problem is he is so active during the day he does not want to nurse. He bf's fine right after he wakes up in the morning and at night before bed, he also wakes up for a quick snack at about 4:30 am, but getting him to nurse during the day is a huge struggle. He squirms and wiggles, he just wants down, I have tried going into a quite, dim room but that has no effect. I can get him to 'snack' for 3-5 minutes but that is it. I worry he is not getting enough. He has always been in the 10% for weight but I have always sort of ignored the charts. He is a super active baby and always has been. After overcoming some early difficulties (bleeding, cracked nipples due to poor latch and a stubborn Mama who thought she knew it all) we had been doing really well. Is there any suggestions or tips I could try, or is this normal????

It's totally normal. Even my 8 month old had dropped her daily nursing to basically naptime... and that is it. The rest of the time she's too busy getting into things.

As long as he's happy, I wouldn't worry. He will eat when he's hungry.

swaddling works for us. she is pretty quick all the time though. I second using naptimes to feed him, and would keep trying on the dim room.
