    Default How many strikes?

    It feels like we went through nursing strikes as soon as I went back to work, each a week long, in November, December & January. January was longest & most difficult. Then we've been awesome until now. This current one will be going on 2 weeks in a few days. Has anyone else gone through this many? Granted this last one is a combination of poor oversight in bottle giving & teething, it just feels like way more than I've read others having. Wah.

    I have heard of some dyads going through multiple strikes. Usually strikes resolve around 7 months, IIRC, but not always. Keep at it.

    Thanks. This one's the hardest so far. Then I think of you & at least I got to nurse & hopefully it is just a strike & not the end of nursing or the beginnig of eping (yech). Had to force myself from deep, restful, wonderous sleep at 0200 & cursed the entire time!
