My ebf 8 month old is breast fed at roughly 7, 11, 3 and 7. Plus a fair bit in the night. However the only properly wet nappy he has is first thing in the morning. He isn't very interested in the day time feeds, and as a result I feel my supply is dropping. He eats solids well (BLW) but isn't very interested in water and refuses formula is both a bottle or cup. I've tried the NUK bottles & cups, sippy & doidy cups with no joy. He only does a poo once a week and struggles with pushing when he does do one 😟 I have 2 other children but they were both bottle/formula fed from about 6 months so never experienced this! Would love for my husband to be able to give him a bottle at bed time or a dream feed at 11ish. Partly to know he's getting some fluids and partly so I can be a bit more free! 😊

Have you tried cutting down his solid food so he has more room for liquids?
