My little guy is 11 1/2 months and is refusing to nurse more each day. This is my first time hitting the almost the almost year mark but what do I do? I do offer him the breast every chance I get he just pushes it away.

Just keep offering. He's probably pretty active so he's just too busy to stop to eat. Hand express or pump to maintain supply. Maybe offer some in a sippy cup.

I am going through the same thing. My supply is down becasue I had some stomach virus. Since then he isnt nursing as much. He nurses most in the evening and before bed. Keep offering. That is what I have been doing. Goodluck.

What is he eating? Remember to always nurse before solids, no nursing = no solids before at least a year.

No food until he nurses and that includes liquids too.

First self weaning doesn't happen before 1. Is he nursing before any solds?  He should be, solds are dessert and for only after a full nursing. Coud just be a nursing strike too, he'll nurse when he's ready, just keep offering.
