Re: It's been a week now with this nursing strike :(
I am so sorry about the nursing strike, mama. I have seen friends go through them and they are extremely stressful. Also, they all happened right around this age- 9-10 months.
Has the doc actually seen the baby? Checked his ears, swabbed his throat for strep? Or was this just a phone consult?
This is the best link I know of for nursing strikes: http://kellymom.com/bf/concerns/child/back-to-breast/ the skin-to-skin and instant reward techniques are supposed to be especially helpful.
