Re: nursing strike?
Don't get discouraged, mama. What you're seeing is pretty common with older babies. They get so distracted by the interesting world all around them that they put off nursing for the nighttime hours. The way to deal with distraction is to try to stay calm, to offer frequently, and to nurse in non-stimulating locations, for example a darkened bedroom or a calm bath. It doesn't always work- busy babies are sometimes just too busy! If it doesn't, staying available for night-nursing is really the best way through this, because it gives your LO the calories he needs and helps him reconnect with you and with the breast.
