So DD is almost 8 mos. and since around 2-3 months we have been doing the teething thing, with 3 or 4 days/nights of fussiness, pain, etc., then a few good days, then back again. Which always leaves her not wanting to nurse when she's in pain. Add to that the fact that my milk seems to be getting slower and slower to let down with time. She gets so frustrated at having to wait, especially when she's in pain. So lately I've started pumping until my milk lets down when DH is home to hold her, but if I don't do it soon enough, she gives up entirely on the idea of nursing, and then I can't get her to nurse even after I've gotten things "going" for her. The battle always seems to be the worst in the evenings when I'm tired, and unfortunately, DH is not always home in the evenings to help. I'm just so frustrated with this. She just gets so fussy and upset in the evenings still. I really thought we would be past this by now. What do you do with your LOs when they want to nurse, but don't want to nurse? How can I get my milk to let-down faster? Some nights I just really hate nursing/being a mom. I just hate feeling like I wish I'd never had a LO.
