My bb is 19 months and she don't want to

Eat because I still breastfeeding and I really don't know what to do. I don't want to keep on breastfeeding because she is always grabbing my shirt... Always... What can I do ?

How often are you breastfeeding? My daughter. Is 18 months and breastfeeding three times a day. It isn't getting in the way of meals though. I was surprised by what a toddler portion was. Half a slice of bread is one serving for them. Is your LO underweight? If not I wouldn't worry too much. Your milk still has plenty of nutrients!

Actually, that's not true. After 6 months babies need many nutrients that cannot be provided by breast milk alone. It might be time to ween, that would likely spur them to want to increase their solid food intake. My son is 13 months, on solids only (almost all finger food, as recommended by his ped.) He eats 3 main meals a day and 3 snacks, of nearly adult-sized portions. He is a tall one though, 98th on height, and 65th on weight. He eats a wide variety of foods, with different spices and textures, and lots of colorful veggies and fruist, and tons of iron-rich foods + D supplements. Vit-d and iron are 2 that are needed the most that they don't get enough of through BF. I just put the food in front of him and let him eat until he's full.

Dd is 2 and still breastfed, I'm thankful for my milk still providing for her because she picks at food. It's totally normal for formula fed or breastmilk babies to be picky eaters. As pp said, as long as their weight is good I wouldn't worry hun. You can try to make food more fun (like shapes and creations) there's some fun ideas on Pinterest.com.
