    Thanks all for your replies. It helps to know that I am not alone... DH doesnt want anymore kids, so Im very sad that my only chance at BF turns out this way

    My worry with this is, if he doesnt feed at all during the day (ok maybe 1 minute here and there), and only feeds at night, will he get enough milk during such a short period of time? But then again, some babies sleep thru the night, and only feed during the day.

    I sure am glad to see I'm not the only one dealing with this. For us it started about 1 1/2 weeks ago. It's been so frustrating (I posted it on the Nursting strike thread).

    My biggest problem is that I work full time, so he gets bottles (actually sippy cups as of this week) with EBM at the daycare. And he nurses best first thing in the morning. Otherwise that's it. I tried nursing him at night, but he won't have it (he sleeps through the night).

    I have a question for you ladies though... What do you think I should do on the weekend. Do you think I should just try to nurse him (even if it'll be a long time between sessions; if so how long should I go) or should I pump and give it to him in a sippy... And what about the solids, should I give them to him or not...

    So confused!!!
