DS (11mths) about to start nursery and hardly eating

ds is still bf and we still enjoy it.
We started down the blw route as I thought I would have loads of time before he starts nursery and by then he would at least eat so well that I do not have to worry about his eating while he is at nursery. He will be going every day all day (I won't see him from about 8 am to 4 pm).
Well, he did start eating more around eight months but by now he is back to loads of milk feeds and only munches on things (some bread roll, one or two bits of cereal, some meat sometimes and courgette, which he seems to love at the moment as well as bones).
I have tried feeding him but other than one or two spoons he will not take (not from his dad either).
By now I am really starting to worry about his feeding once he is in nursery which is not helping at all I know as I am getting anxious but I cannot help it.
Any suggestions please on how to handle this? Should I just assume for now that he will eat once I am not around as I do not think that he would starve himself and also sees the other kids eat?
Am also worried about my supply as I did not really fancy being at work with breasts that are about to bursts.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you and sorry for the long post.

My DS is 13 months and has been at nursery for 4 weeks. He eats completely differently at nursery as he copies the other children. E.g. he eats food he would never eat at home, and he eats off a spoon whereas he only eats finger foods for me.

Not exactly the same situation as you, but I would imagine he will be ok. Good luck!

Thank you kevinsmother, I was hoping that ds might do the same.
