Any creative ideas? It's been progressing in this direction for weeks/months but this past weekend my 10-month old son was basically REFUSING to nurse during the daytime (other than before one of his naps). I was leaking, having to pump, etc.
Then at nighttime he wants to nurse Alllll Night Long. And I get up and go to work after that.
He is showing a similar daytime pattern even on the days I am at work. My husband (caregiver) says the baby is eating less and less as time goes on, and I am finding wasted unfinished milk bottles at the end of the day the past 2 weeks. The horror.
When I am home (3 days a week) I do try to offer nursings in private, no music or distractions, lights dimmed, etc - but baby cries when I try to get his head near the breast.
But when the sun goes down... he is happy to nurse HOURLY all night.
I had been plotting to night-wean but now he is 95% reverse cycling!
I dont have the ENERGY to deal with this... Help?
