When my mom introduced my now eighteen month old sister to baby foods she simply skipped breastfeeding when my sister ate baby food. If she fed my sister three jars of baby food, then my mom would skip breastfeeding her approximately three times. This way she didn't get too much phe, but my mom was still able to breastfeed. Take to your sons doctor and see if something like this might be possible if you still want to breastfeed.
