I need some help. I have been successfully breastfeeding my precious for 7 months, 2 weeks and 1 day, well, maybe for 7 months.
Okay, here's my problem. Katlynn seems like she doesn't want to nurse anymore. She has been so attached to me for so long that this is very alarming
and discouraging for me. From the time she was about 3 months old, she would nurse a little bit and let go and look around. I just chalked that up to curiosity. Then a couple of weeks ago, she started this thing where she'll nurse for a minute exactly and try to sit up. I got my mom to watch her nurse(she successfully breastfed my sister and I and has been my reassurance this whole time) and she told me to sit her up beside me and let her nurse that way. Katlynn will nurse like that for a few more minutes and then get bored and want to get up. The only time I can get her to nurse her normal 20 minutes on each side is if we lay down in the bed.
Has this happened to anyone, or does anyone have any suggestions? Mama said it's too early for her to try to be weening herself, and I am not ready to give this up. PLEASE HELP!!!
