    Smile my little pump is working again...

    Many of you may know that ds has been fighting the breast for the longest time. Well, hopefully now he is back to nursing well again. Of course he could start refusing the breast again (hope not ) but for the time being he is a little nursing angel. It`s been so long with the struggle I`ve forgotten how wonderful it is to breast feed.

    Thanks everyone for being so encouraging.
    I`m not sure if he`ll go back to his old habits or not, but for now I`m really encouraged. Truth is I didn`t do anything special. Just kept offering the breast. He still pulls off many times, but it`s not nearly as bad as it used to be.
    One thing I found helpful is giving him a little toy to play with while nursing. He has a little turtle he likes to hold on to.

    Well, miracle over...He is refusing to nurse again. It`s been going on for a couple of days again and I`ve been waiting for the good days to return. Anyway, it was nice to see the sunshine for a while

    Im sorry to hear it!!! my lo has been ok lately, but he still fights vehemently at naptime and bedtime... I started stting with him the floor while he plays with the same toy right next to where i nurse him and when he starts realizing that I am there with him and doesn't fight when I take him away from his toy, then it is ok to nurse him. It worked for a week or so. Now he is just giving my the straight arm and pinching me and making all sorts of funny faces.... good luck to you!!!

    I think he is teething again. At 8.5 months he`s got 6 teeth and seems like there is another one on the way. He`s been very crabby, pulling on his ear, running a low-grade fever and chewing on everything in site. In other words, doing everything...but nursing. Well, this shall also pass...I hope...or else, the mental hospital
