i dont have any advice but Elijah is also on feeding strike (well certainly dramatically dropped feeds), i am putting it down to teeth, but he is also a good eater with food so he maybe just is naturally weaning from boob?, it makes me very sad. our only decent feed is morning feed now, and even then he is very distracted and i sense he may be wishing to end it soon too.

how quickly they grow.

i hope the feeding strike passes soon for you,

Dawn
Hi!!!! I do remember you!!! How are you?? Thanks for writing me back! Thanks, and congratulations to you, too, on making it to 13 months! I remember you being concerned about breastfeeding! So glad it worked out for you!!!!

I really don't think Jacob is done... it's VERY rare for kiddos to wean abruptly and even more rare for them to do so before 2 years (some people may fight me on those statements, but the research says most kiddos who stop nursing abruptly and before that age are on a strike). Also, he definitely WANTS to nurse.... he latches on, then unlatches. He did it Sunday, Monday, & Tuesday evenings - long story short, he latched on but immediately unlatched. He was admittedly happier about it this time around - previously each time he tried to latch he screamed after spitting me out. This time he just seems cautious. After my daughter nursed until she was over 3 years old, this whole thing just has me stumped.

As for Elijah, are you offering often, or waiting for him to "ask"? Is it possible for you to take him away from the distractions? Can you take him into a quiet room for nursing time? If it gets worse and he's open to it, you could always try to dream feed (my son wants NOTHING to do with that though )

FX nursing turns back to normal for us both! I'm still pumping to keep up my supply.... I considered stopping, but I was finally able to get in touch with my LC who was 100% confident he'd come back to nursing, but just couldn't tell me when. While I'm not 100% certain he'll come back (he's SO stubborn!) it did give me a little hope. Also, he just LOVES when I hand him his sippy cup of "nana milk" - he guzzles it. I'd hate to take that away from him.

Anyway, it was really nice to hear from you. Hope everything works out for you!!!

Thanks Daisy!!! Not really (you can probably read my post to Dawn above) but at least I'm sort of at peace with where I am now. It's not ideal, but I offer to him when I can, keep it lighthearted, and pump 5x daily. I despise pumping, but when Jacob is SO excited to get his sippy cup of "nana milk" it makes it all worth it. And in the end, I hope my LC is correct and that he'll come back to nursing so I can detach from my pump. And if not... well, I'll just keep hanging on for "one more day"...
