I'm back... I have more concerns with nate's refusal to take any liquids all day. When I mentioned to the ped she just said I couldn;t force it... but I still worry he is not getting enough.
But how many diapers should he have at 11 months? He still poops fine, but he does not have but maybe 1-2 wet diapers a day -- one of them being the overnight diaper.
He nurses in the morning, and then around 4 pm when I am off work. Then he generally goes until bedtime -- nurses to sleep. Then he will wake up a few times during the night, and I nurse him anytime he does (anywhere from 2 times, to the record 14 times last night). We co-sleep still. Sometimes there is a session between the 4pm and bedtime... depends.
If I could get him to take water or juice or anything it would be fine... but he will not take any sippy cup I have tried (about 12 of them total -- DH cut me off from buying anymore), can't do the straw thing, and just stopped taking the BM ice-cubes that I made for him.
The only thing I have not tried and will have to sneak into the house is the sports bottle type of cup. I can;t find one... does anyone have a picture of one they like?
Do you think he is getting enough? I realize the ped is partially right and I can't force it, but it is really hard to not do something that you know your child needs!
ANy thoughts? can you put my mind at ease?
