Atharva is now 7 months old and taking almost all types of top feeds including cereals, fruits and milk. The problem is that during daytime even if he is hungry, he won't drink breast milk at all and prefers something to eat through katori spoon, be it cow milk or some cereal.. He however feeds on breast milk the entire night whenever he is hungry in his sleep.. Is this going to affect his growth? Is there a way I can manage to still keep my milk supply sufficient because I may eventually start producing less milk if he continues with the same feeding pattern?

Answer:
you give him well spaced three to five milk feeds besides three to four solid feeds, so that the child remains well fed through the day. This would include his filing dinner and may be a milk feed at sleep time.
