My 8 month old seems to be weaning from the breast. This seems too early to me. She wants "real" food during the day and to nurse all night. Advice?

In brief: Kids interest
Production will be hard to maintain if she ignores you completely during the day so do what you can to bf some.
Some kids are less cuddly than others & daytime distractions can lead to pattern changes. Limit nursing @ night to 30min segments no closer than 4hrs to push her to do some day feeds.You both need sleep.
