    I thought feeding on breast milk would reduce after introducing solids. There’s no difference!

    How old is your baby? Probably not one yet. I think breast milk is still most important at this age and stage. So let them feed as much as they want!

    Yeah your baby’s milk intake shouldn’t change even with introducing solids. Up until 12 months formula manufacturers recommend about 600mls per day which means breastfeeding plenty!

    He should suck as much as he wants depending on your availability. My son is on solids now and he sucks whenever I’m back from work and mostly in the night

    <!–more–>if you are a full time house wife,  your baby should be able to get as much breast milk as he want despite of the introduction of baby food,  except his intake to baby food is constant on decline.

    My baby is 13 months she eats well during the day but at night all she does it sucking till day break. The breast intake reduced when she started taking other food but she cries for breast when she wants to sleep, I think the breast intake either reduce or remain the same when food is introduced it depends on the child
