My son is just over nine months and has eats solid meals 2-3 times a day. He has started reducing the amount of formula he drinks considerably, so I had over 20oz left over from last week, for example.
The KellyMom site says babies under 12 months don't self wean but I think my son is a lot less interested in nursing, and sometimes outright refuses. The reliable nursing sessions are the evening and 3am ones, and usually an afternoon one or two. Each time, I think he gets 4-5oz, possibly 6-7 in the evenings.
My estimate is that he drinks around 20-22oz per day (although I don't know exactly, I do know that he used to drink 32oz when I was away for a work trip, and now he drinks quite a bit less).
Is this normal? Is he starting to self-wean? Should I encourage it or insist on nursing? I've just been letting him do his thing, but if I continue to do that, my supply will surely adjust down.
