Re: Anyone overcome a nursing strike? Please share your stor
DD2 had 4 nursing strikes between 9 and 18 mths. Each lasted about 14-16 days and she would go back to nursing. I pumped during each one and it worked. She is now 3 and still nursing for nap and bedtime, she dropped the morning session a couple months ago. She had all kinds of issues with FTT and eating so I just never gave up since we had so few ways to feed her. I just kept offering casually at the times of day that she would do it and she would suddenly just start again. I hope things work out for you!
