Hi... I have been lurking in the forums a while, but never posted, as I usually get my answer that way... But not this time. My DS has been refusing to nurse off and on for a few weeks now, and is now refusing to nurse at all. I was able to nurse him is he was sleepy enough and could get him to nurse at night. He is now refusing entirely, despite changing positions, nursing in quiet locations, etc. I've talked with two lactation consultants, and have tried all their suggestions. I have been pumping to keep up my supply, but now he is refusing the bottle too. I eliminated most allergens from my diet when he was a newbie (no dairy, soy, wheat, only one cup of decaf coffee a day). I am getting so stressed out, and thought about buying formula today but I really don't want to (plus I think he'll have allergies to it anyway).
Any thoughts? I am starting to feel like a total failure.
