Re: Tips on getting my 8.5 month old to nurse in public?
i remember wanting to be a active mommy for my toddler while still being a laid back mommy for the baby!
Someone had got to give in and I felt guilty always expecting the older child to compromise.
But I had a rough time getting ds4 to NIP. and one time I ended up with mastitis b/c a delayed feeding turned into a plugged duct and rapidly became infected.
i eventually found ways to get ds4 to nurse in various positions like sitting up facing me or nursing in the sling.
I just kept trying everyday to outwit him. sometimes I would express the milk into his mouth and face and get a little bossy with him.
I would say,"look dude, you've got to nurse mamma can't take it no more."
