  • You can't force him. Just keep offering him the food and he will eat what he wants. A babies serving size is extremely small...a couple of tablespoons at a time.

  • How old is he?
    It's actually healthier to eat the way he's doing it. "Small frequent meals"

  • Try eliminating any distractions that he may have while nursing such as tv, older children running around, music, etc.

    Are you nursing on one or both sides during each feeding? If you're only offering one breast and after 10-15 minutes he seems uninterested him in nursing more, offer the other breast.
