DD is 11 months and we are SO CLOSE to making it to the one year mark. This was my goal for bfing and after all sorts of ups and downs, we are almost there! However, lately she has been refusing to nurse during the day. This morning she refused her first wake up nursing session - never had that happen before. However, she will nurse before bed and then 2 times at night. The kicker is that she won't even really accept pumped BM from a bottle, a sippy, a dropper, etc. during the day either. However, I offered her a little juice just to see what she would do and she downed 2 oz. My husband says that she's just sick of milk because that's all she's been getting for almost a year. I'm not sure that's the case... but I guess I don't know!
The last time this happened (maybe a month ago) she ended up with an ear infection and nursed better after medicine. Should I take her back to the doctors or should I just keep pumping and hope she'll drink the milk at some point? Can babies have BM aversions after months of successful nursing? I'm keeping an eye on the diapers in case they get low, but I just thought I'd see what you guys thought. Can babies wean for just the day time before completely weaning altogether?
Thanks for the help!
