Re: Unexpected Weaning: Need Support!
Welcome, mama! I'm sorry abut the nursing strike. They stink. This link goes over all the ways I know of to get a baby back to the breast: http://www.kellymom.com/bf/concerns/...to-breast.html. In particular, the skin-to-skin and instant reward techniques are supposed to be helpful.
Some people will tell you that babies don't self-wean at less than a year, but I'm not convinced of it because I know 2 kids who self-weaned at around 9-10 months. Their moms did everything but still ended up making it to a year only by using their pumps. So if your little one won't go back to the breast, you're not alone.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
