Quoting slwandcls:" I know your pain i have been where you are more than once, if he is 8 months old he is old enough to try baby cereal i always put it in a bottle of breast milk for their last feeding."
He doesn't take bottles, and I wouldn't mix his bottles with cereal anyways.
But he does eat solid meals. He normally has a vegetable and maybe some dry toast for dinner. Eating solids doesn't change his nursing habits. Hes pretty regularly nursing every 2 hours, or more, around the clock. Last night he nursed at 1am, 3am and was up for the day at 4am.
