I don't have an answer, but Gio isn't eating as much either. I do pump once a day though which helps with them being so full. I have been giving him a little bit of pumped milk in a sippy cup with his meals though and i also use it for his oatmeal in the morning.

Yeah, I don't know what is going on... I just gave her milk in a bottle at the table, and she drank the whole thing!! My milk that is!

Levi doesn't nurse much during the day anymore. He seems to prefer the fast flow of his bottles and eating solids. It makes me sad, but he still nurses at night at least.

She may be on a nursing strike, this happens sometimes with older babies but it does not mean they are self-weaning. Here is some more info about it:

Do Babies under 12 months Self Wean?

Dahlia is not huge on solids still and she tends to nurse much less throughout the day due to distraction. I have to take her into a dark room to get a good session in or nurse with a cover. She tends to make up for what she missed during the day at night, so I have to try and keep her focused or she will be up all night wanting to eat!

^Yup! Distraction is killer! Levi is just so busy! He wants to see and touch and play with everything that he is just too impatient to nurse. He won't wait for the letdown, he will nurse for a minute and then be gone, looking for something to play with. It is a little frustrating. I kind of hope this baby is a calm, laid-back one!

I was chatting with someone on FB. I really don't know her but she personally responded to one of my questions on naturally born's page. She said that the body compensates less feedings with fattier milk. I would pump!

Thanks ladies! I will take a look at those articles Rachel. I definitely don't intend to stop offering the breast, I am trying to make it 2 years because we are delaying her vaxes for now, so she needs all the immunity she can get!I stayed up last night while she was nursing to see how much she nursed, and she actually nursed a lot! So I guess she just needs less distractions during the day. I'm also gonna trying pumping around mealtimes so she can use her "big girl cups" lol. So independent this kid...

Lina is doing the same thing. She hates nursing during the day. The only time I can get ger to nurse is 1st thing in the morning or middle of the night if she wakes up. I actually started supplementing with formula because I thought she was just done with nursing. If I offer her a bottle she downs in so quick. I actually starting supplementing with formula at 8 months with her because I stopped pumping at work, just couldn't handle the pumping anymore and I was barely getting any milk. I was thinking it was due to me being pregnant again.
