    if she's growing and developing then it's fine. they don't generally need much solid food under 12 months

    Don't worry at all little O, I found little ones chop and change so much re solids appetite. DD was the same, then around 10 or 11 months started eating like a Hoover ... Now at one she's a bit on and off. A great thing someone told me is to look at baby's eating habits not in patterns of 12 or 24 hours but a few days. I used to freak out with DD if she had a day or two of almost blatant food refusal, but then the next couple of days she seemed to make up for it. Just keep some of her Old faithful foods on hand for stubborn days- with DD it's (currently) yoghurt, wheat bix, tuna and a couple of other things.

    Kids appetites change so much as they grow. If she still seems happy and healthy, then you don't need to worry. But if your gut/instinct is telling to check it out then by all means get it checked.

    T, you are doing more than you realize for DMER, bringing it out into the light of day so we can all learn. You are such a great mum to be persisting. I'm in awe.

    TWO YEARS. I've met my minimum goal, everything after this point is just icing on the cake Looks like we'll be going for quite a while yet, but wow... Two years. *sniffle* I remember the frustration at the beginning, the whole "is this what it's going to be like?" sense of disappointment when we had a rocky start. But then it clicked, and here we are...

    2 Years Teni!! That's totally awesome!

    I have just come in here to say Yay, we have made it to almost 13 months since our first BF when DS was 135 days old! I'm still on motilium, still expressing.. My next goal is to get bub through his surgery recovery, then I'll re assess again.. Sometimes I feel totally ready to stop, but then when he feeds I'm like Awww, I love it .. It's just expressing I hate!! If only I could stop expressing and keep feeding.. Anyway, I reached my first goal of 12 months so I'm pretty happy..

    I had mastitis a couple of weeks ago! I couldn't believe it. DS is 17 months old and I have never had it before.. It was AWFUL!! I stopped motilium while I had it, but had to go back on it.. I have no idea why my supply is so awful..
