    Re: Nursing strike or teething?

    Sounds like she's distracted and interested in other things right now. I would just go with the flow. As long as she's wetting her diapers and happy, the she'll decide when to up her nursing intake...

    Re: Non stop nurser

    Roxie is hit and miss with solids as well. She still nurses a ton too, at 22 months.:drop. We are going to have her iron checked soon, just to rule that out, but I agree with Beth that it's also the...

    Re: noises at breast

    Oh yeah, they make all kinds of noise at the breast. My DD used to grunt, hum, you name it. I think it's like making "Mmmmm" noises of appreciation when you eat a great meal, you know?

    Re: could this be a sign of weaning?

    :ita that you shouldn't stress too much about supply. If she's normally a frequent nurser, she'll boost it back up within a couple of days of feeling better.
