My 11.5 month old is refusing to nurse in the day. Again. I have ranted on this forum for quite a few times about this. He used to nurse every 2 hours on both sides. Now he will not nurse more than 4 hour intervals. Only one side. And that's after I 'force' him. He has always been on the small side. His weight is even lower than 5 percentile now. He's not very interested in solids yet (doing bls). I feel like i'm a big failure and I'm so depressed now. I've tried various methods - dark room, nurse lying down, rocking/bouncing, but he acts like he hates my breasts. I'm certain he will starve/dehydrate himself to death at some point!
He's teething all the time since 6 months. I don't know if teething is the cause.
He does nurse at night. We co sleep and I'm not awake enough to count the number of times. As a result my sleep is crap. I ache all over. I can't sleep in the day because, well, i just can't. Now my breasts are in pain too because of the engorgement. I'm reluctant to pump because I don't know when he will want to nurse. I'm so desperate now I want to cry. Hubby does not understand anything I'm going through and you ladies are all I've got to stay sane. I dont know what to do now. Please help me out. Thank you!
