What should I expect when my baby is nine months old?
At nine months, the feeds are variable but are usually shorter during the day and longer at night. Mothers with a large milk supply may find that their babies breastfeed a little more often, faster, and are less likely to take the second side. The choking and tummy pain will have settled. Babies at this age should be given solid foods from all the food groups, but milk is still the main part of their diet. They still need to be breastfed to sleep. Breastfeeding will also calm the baby, cure thirst, and limit pain. Mother should continue to breastfeed whenever the baby asks to do so.
