Re: Five month old losing interest in breastfeeding?
Aw, I'm sorry you guys are having a rough time, mama. It sounds like he's getting a lot of your milk which is awesome! My thought when I read your post is that right around that age, there is SO much brain development going on, that could possibly be it. My son will be 5 months on the 18th and I noticed that he's becoming much more distractable, much more alert to what's going on, and the list goes on. Just keep up the nursing as much as possible, as that should be his main source of nutrition right now. My guess is that he will calm down a little, and become more content with the nursing before/after naps like he used to be.
