UGH…nursing

So Calvin is almost 10 months old. I am really struggling with nursing. He’ll nurse fine in the morning, but it is a FIGHT to get him to nurse any other time. He even refuses bottles. He currently nurses at 7am, around 11:30am, then around 3:30-4pm, then we bottle at 7pm. So far today he has nursed at 7:30 am, and that’s it. It is 1:30pm. That’s 6 hours. I’ve tried to nurse, he is just not interested. What do I do? What can I do? I am TIRED of fighting him, but I know he has to eat. He eats three meals a day, and pretty decently sized. At breakfast he’ll eat an entire bowl of oatmeal(and full adult serving) and I even mix it with fruit or veggies, so he’s also getting a serving of fruit or veggies. Lunch, he’ll suck down a fruit or veggie pouch and eat off my plate. Dinner he’ll eat whatever we’re eating. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    1. We usually bf about an hour before its solids time, but no such luck. He did end up nursing again, at 4:30 but then it was only for 6 minutes. I think he’s on a nursing strike. I’ll try to stick it out, but if it makes me too crazy, formula here we come.
