I wrote a couple of days ago asking about my son's nursing strike. Thank you to those who were able to offer some advice. I have a follow-up question. We are now on day 6 of the nursing strike. I have gotten my son to nurse at night after he falls into a light sleep with the bottle. So, the question now is...how do I get him to nurse while awake?
I am still offering without pressure. I am a working mom so baby wearing is very difficult time wise and he has started to crawl and wants to explore more than anything.
I have also discovered that at least 1 tooth is coming in, a premolar (the one that is next to a bottom incisor). And he was sick. So I'm sure that is all part of it. But will he ever forget the discomfort and come back? When do I know to call it quits and except that my child is one of the few that weaned himself before his first birthday?
Thank you again for the support.
