Re: Teaching 5 month old to latch?
Wow, a nursing strike is unusual in a baby that young! I think there are mamas who have had success getting babies to relatch even after months of bottle-feeding, but as always in life there are no guarantees. And the longer the baby has been off the breast, the harder it is likely to be.
All the ways I know of to end a strike are here: http://www.kellymom.com/bf/concerns/...to-breast.html I hope there's something there that you haven't tried!
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
