I've posted once before due to a nursing strike. Everyone was very helpful. Unfortunately, LO is still on strike. He will nurse if I lie down in bed with him, but it's usually when he is ready for a nap. I think he is only comfort nursing. It's been 3 weeks since he first started refusing to nurse. I continue to offer my breast before every feeding, as well as anytime he fusses. He gets very upset as soon as I put him in the nursing position. If I take him into my bed and lie down next to him, he will usually nurse, unless he is very hungry, then he demands the bottle. This usually leads to him falling asleep after only a few minutes of actual nursing, I then just become his pacifier. Today he refused to take any naps unless I laid down with him and comfort nursed him. I hope this doesn't become a habit, because he used to fall asleep on his own. What's frustrating is that he no longer thinks of nursing as nourishment. My question is, why does the position make such a difference? Does anyone know why lying down can get an otherwise refusing baby to nurse? And why does he get so angry if I put him in a cradle position to nurse? Another question is, do you think there's still a chance that this strike will end after 3 weeks? He still nurses 3 or 4 times at night, and during the day when he's sleepy (if I lie down with him). I miss the way it was. I hate giving him a bottle, it makes me feel inadequate. I want him to nurse for nourishment as well as comfort.
