I don't know if we're having a nursing strike or what. I posted last night about this, but it's still happening. He had nursed yesterday at 2 pm. Then refused and thus had nothing but 2 crackers at 3 pm. He went to sleep by 7 pm and woke at 1 am to eat. At 620 when he woke again, he refused to nurse.
My 2 biggest questions:
He's hungry but won't nurse. What do I give him? This morning, out of desperation, I gave him some yogurt. I tried to nurse again, and he still refuses (and that's after I tried for a long time before the yogurt). Obviously, he has to eat something, sooo:
#2 - should I be pumping when he decides to skip? Should I be giving him EBM?
I'm trying not to think about it while he's starting to nurse, but that's virtually impossible. Another poster suggested TV or music while I nurse him - but he will have none of that -- it's all too interesting. He's almost 8 months, and everything is more fun than sitting still. He's never been a snuggler (except when he was teeny) because of his crazy curiosity.
I've even tried being naked from waist up to see if he just needs "better access" and skin-to-skin. No go.
