    Here are a few of my former post: the first one: http://forums.llli.org/showthread.ph...60#post1261860

    I would love to hear if anyone in your circle of long time leaders/LC's have any additional insight!! THanks!!

    Thank you so much! I would love to read that article when you have a chance to post the link =)

    Thank you for sharing the article! Now I understand why alot of babies that refuse the breast in these situations do so around the 2-3 month mark! Still holding on to hope that *someday* she will accept the breast while awake...but we're still plugging along with our little routine of going upstairs, blasting the white noise, me walking around bouncing & singing, waiting until she goes to sleep and then walking around nursing her. Not sure what's going to happen when she is not so easy to get to sleep or she keeps getting bigger and heavier, but just taking one day at a time and trying not to worry about tomorrow.
