is my dd welf weaning early? why is the taste of my milk changing?

My dd is 8 months old and she is not nursing as much as she use to. she only nurses now for naps and confort (confort is not often). also the milk is not as sweet as it use to be. it's had a little sweetness to it, but not as much and it also has a weird after taste to it.

  • babies go through different stages of bfing. Some stages you will think "is he weaning?" and other stages you will think "will he ever wean?" lol Also, you milk taste can change when your pregnant, its less sweet, so, are you pregnant?

  • Take a pregnancy test. Pregnancy changes your milk taste. Some babies don't mind the change (mine didn't) and other babies do. If pregnancy isn't a possibility, then make sure you are nursing BEFORE offering any solids. I didn't know with my first baby that I was supposed to do that and I gave her solids and then tried to get her to nurse.

  • Pregnancy can be the problem. And this is rare but shouldn't be ruled out. My cousin's DS self weaned early because my cousin had developed breast cancer. Like I said, very rare, but definitely don't pass on looking into it.

  • The more food is added, the less milk the baby will drink, whether breast fed or bottle fed.
