My 3 month (soon to be 4 month) old dd has been refusing to nurse while awake. If I offer while she is awake, she screams and pushes me away. This has been going on for almost 2 months now. The only thing I can attribute it to is OALD/OS. The OS is under control, but I still think I have a pretty strong let-down. I do all the "tricks": laid back nursing, let the spray go into a towel, etc.
I guess my question is: will she ever be willing to nurse while awake? I can see this becoming a bigger problem as she gets older and harder to get to sleep before each feed.
This is my 3rd nursling. My first weaned at 36 months, my second at 24 months...so I know how sweet/rewarding a nursing relationship can be....this is totally unnerving.
Anyone ever have any experience with a baby with an aversion? Please tell me there is hope for her to actually want to nurse.
Thanks for reading.
