    Yes, definitely!

    Also, I want to second the suggestion from a previous poster to consider taking a bath together. There's something about both being naked and in water that seems to encourage nursing.

    Ok I do have another question.......do you think that its possible I am offering too often? I basically walk around the house topless it seems...I wonder if he is persisting because I am being to "pushy"? Also, do you think he has forgotten how to latch or doesn't remember what to do with it? Most of the time he just pinches the nipple even when he sees milk come out. I think this is more difficult because he (10 months) has somewhat lost his "need" or desire to suck right?

    He takes 2 naps a day and has 3 small meals(exp. breakfast: cut up banana and cherrios lunch: sweet potatoes and quinoa dinner: veggie and chicken pouch) very few snacks if any. He will eat appox. one 4oz baby food pouch at a time. Milk is always first. When is was nursing I would nurse him and then he would eat solids.
