My name is Catherine and I am new to this site. I successfully bf my first dd (now 3) till 18 months and I am currently nursing my 6mo old. Both were ebf till 6 mo when I introduced solids. Currently, I am having a problem with my 6mo old not wanting to nurse/eat during the day. However, she does eat all night long and has since birth (I am a co-sleeper with no desire to push her to sleep through the night). I don't believe it is a nursing strike since she does occasionally have a snack and still eats at night. She has been extremely fussy but my ped found nothing wrong with her at her check-up on Monday. She cut her bottom teeth over three weeks ago so I have no idea what is going on. I have been pumping to maintain the feeds and have been pumping plenty of milk and my letdown has been completely normal. Anyone have any ideas or has had this situation with their child? She has also been an extremely distracted nurser for about a month now (which is also very frustrating) but now it has turned into not eating anything during the day (not even that interested in solids). She is gaining perfect weight, she is 19lb. 2oz at her 6 mo. appt., up a lb. since last month.
PS. I am a teacher so I am home for the summer. My other daughter did the whole "refuse to eat while at daycare" routine so this is slightly different since I am around to feed her.
