Does anyone have any ideas? My 7 month son, who has been very picky at breastfeeding since he was 4 months, is starting to reject the breast at different bf sessions. Until now, I've had to bf in a darkened room with no noise, which has been difficult due to my oldest son, who is 2, wanting to be everywhere I am. I've recently been able to nurse him with distractions in the room, but the past couple of days when I have attempted to breastfeed, he immediately arches back and cries and refuses to take the breast at all. In the past I would wait a little longer to feed (if possible) or let him go until the next nursing (he is eating solids as well). Today, I wanted to test if he was really hungry, when he arched and cried at the breast I went and made a bottle of ebm and he sucked it right down. Is it a faze, age, or could he be wanting to wean (which I really hope is not the case)? I would really like to continue bf until 1 year of age.
