I think Ashelyn (she'll be one year next month) is self weaning. She has two top & two botom teth and has been biting me a lot lately. Mostly because she's not that interested in nursing. Sometimes (usually in the AM) she will nurse well one or two times. Then the rest of the day, and even before bed, she kind of pops on & off, bites...just doesn't seem too interested in nursing at all.
Problem is, she doesn't want to try and figure out the sippy cup. She has taken botles in the past and I am reluctant to try them now since she is just about a year old...so I'd like to go right to sippy cups. She just chews on the spout (we use Nuby for Lexi, so Ashelyn is inheriting those). When she does get some milk, she spits it & blows raspberries.
So, I don't know wha to do!!! I am probably going to call the Pedi tomorrow because I wory about dehydration. Her diapers are not too wet except maybe one or two a day.
This all started just a few days ago. I'm sad that she wants to stop nursing (at least that's what it seems like per her cues).
Any advice? Words of wisdom? Ideas on how to get her used to milk & the sippy cup?
Oh and BTW - I need to change my signature line, but I am not pregnant any longer (I miscarried on 9/11 at 10.5 weeks), so that is not a factor in this self-weaning.
