Re: Trying to breasfeed after being away from home
It may take several days to bring her back to the breast. Read up on nursing strikes - that's what this is. Since she's taking it when she's asleep, she obviously still has the ability to do this.
For starters, offer the breast when she's happy and in a good mood, not when she's already angry with hunger. You could try lots of skin to skin - you wandering around the house, playing with her, all without a shirt on.
Take a warm, relaxing bath with her.
