Re: Nursing Strike v. Weaning at 10 months?
Just because your baby is extra distractible right now, that doesn't mean that you need to accept that and allow distractability to turn into self-weaning. Sometimes a mom has no choice in the matter- I know a few of babies who have self-weaned before a year. But don't let what other people have to say about weaning dictate what you do, in terms of offering.
Have you tried taking your LO into a dark, quiet, low-distraction environment when it's around the time to nurse? Sometimes the world is just too interesting for a baby to focus on nursing, or even to remember that she is hungry. A nursing necklace might be useful, too, since it would give your Lo something to play with while she's waiting for the letdown to start.
Is your LO getting a lot of bottles/sippies? Sometimes when a baby has easy alternatives for nursing- especially one she can carry around with her while she's exploring all the interesting things in her environment- that allows her to forgo nursing more easily. Maybe stick to a open cup for a while, and see if that changes her enthusiasm for nursing?
