I have a 6 mo. old that has managed through my OALD that I didn't know existed until today! She can handle the spray now that she's older, but she has assumed a general disinterest in nursing. When she was little, she would scream and choke and barf and have a hard time eating. I didn't know that it was my problem that could be fixed, so we suffered through it. Now she rarely eats when we are out and she is best at eating when we are laying in bed and she's half asleep. Infact I work very hard to sneak feedings during nap time and at night. She has no interest in comfort feeding to add insult to injury, she loves solids! She seems like she would gladly trade a boob for baby oatmeal any day.
So my question is this: is it too late to adjust her to pleasant breastfeeding? Now that I know what I can do to make it more pleasant, will she be able to overcome the last 6 months of neccessary torture and learn to love the boob?
ps. My first baby nursed for 2 years and loved loved loved it. I'd like to nurse #2 as long as that, but she seems to be setting herself up for early weening which I really do not want!
