I nursed DD1 and DD2 for over 2 and a half years each, even tandem but they were so much different compared to DD3 (8.5 mo). They were both comfort nursers and DD3 is not. I had a rough week last week, DH was away and I was alone with the 3 of them so I'm exhausted.
The past couple of days my breasts seem smaller and less full and may be I'm paranoid but I don't feel as much let down as before. She also has been a bit fussier lately but when I offer to nurse she usually refuses she nurses better at nap-time and during the night but during the day she seems to be too busy. I offer her often in case she changes her mind. She is into solids now, we do BLS but I only feed her solids 3 times a day. She has plenty of dirty and wet diapers but her BM are not as those of a newborn anymore, you can see she is eating solids by checking her diaper.
1) If it was teething, wouldn't she be wanting to nurse more, not less?
2) If it was stress or me being too tired, wouldn't she be asking to nurse more often?
3) Is she going to start a strike? I'm crossing my fingers this is not the case
What do you think?
Thanks a lot in advance!
