Re: Strike, teething, stress or what?
I think I'd chalk this behavior up to the notorious distractability of a close-to-a-year-old baby. Older babies are often too busy to stop and nurse. Try taking her to a calm, low-distraction environment like a darkened bedroom when it's time to nurse. She may give you more undivided attention.
Teething could also explain what's going on. While many babies ramp up their nursing frequency during teething, other babies refuse to nurse when their gums are sore.
An ear infection would be another possibility: sore ears can feel worse when baby nurses. So if this continues for a long time or worsens, or baby seems to have a snotty cold that won't go away, see the doc.
So, is your baby going to go on strike? I don't think there's any way to predict that. But I think you're right to be alert to the possibility.
