    Just had to stop by to update: He nursed today!! At around 5pm he latched on and ate for about 10 minutes. It is SUCH a big positive step that I can't help but smile. I feel like we may be able to get through this after all. I know that we definitely have some hard work ahead of us. Thanks again for your support!

    Oh my gosh, what terrific news! And you're awesome for continuing to offer. So many mommies just throw in the towel, and it would have been completely understandable if you had chosen to do so!

    Thanks! We had a GREAT day today: he has nursed several times! We've gone from nursing only with us on the floor with him sitting facing me to him laying down on his side in my lap while in our "nursing chair". Even earlier this morning he wasn't very sure about everything and still had a slightly haunted look in his eyes... Remnants from whatever caused him concern and to strike in the first place, I believe. For him it was likely almost entirely emotional, and I wish I could figure out what really happened so that I can try to avoid it in the future. I don't want any of us to have to go through this again! When he stops nursing next, I hope that it is because he has decided that it's time for him to wean and he's really comfortable and ready to move on. But for now we are on the road to recovery and I am loving having my smiley, cheery, happy little guy back!
