I posted a while back that my LG hardly eats solids and still relies heavily on breastmilk. She's now one and hasn't got any better. I'm at a loss. Does anyone have any help or advice please?
TIA x

You need to cut down on breast milk to encourage more food. Imagine drinking a massive milkshake that filled your belly, then someone offering you a sandwich. You wouldn't want it.

At one they can just drink cows milk from a cup and have toast or weetabix type thing for breakfast, lasagne for lunch etc.

Have you thought of night weaning now they are one?

@MrsTumbletap I'm not really sure how to go about cutting the breastfeeding. She screams and claws at my chest, lifting my top until I give in

@JiltedJohnsJulie how do I go about night weaning? Is it a case of dropping feeds in the night?

If you click on the words night weaning in my post, it will take you to Dr Jack Goodman's article on night weaning smile
