Hi all. DS is 15.5mo. He nursed all night Friday, then nursed twice Saturday (yesterday) morning and once around 2pm. After that, he would bite the nip every time I offered it. It was as though he wanted milk but wanted to bite it out (ouch!). He refused to nurse before bed, instead only biting me. He was holding his upper lip over his teeth, so I think he's getting his canines. After some tylenol, some oragel (the first time we have ever used it), and some riding around looking at Christmas lights, he went to sleep. I took him in the house, drowsy and we laid down. Then I tried to nurse him. He nursed, gulping the whole time; poor little man was thirsty. He nursed one other time during the night. During both of these nursing sessions, at the end, he bit me. This morning he latched on and then bit me. He bit me each time I offered. DH gave him a sippy of BM and he did sip on it. DS did finally latch on and nurse for a few minutes after he saw me trying to put. He gets very upset with the pump, BTW--he tries to pull it off my breast and cries. Also, he cries every time he bites me. I really think that this is just a strike, but I never realized how hard it would be on me. I feel very rejected, and it doesn't help that every time I get upset, DH says that it's probably time to wean anyway--that's not what I want to hear. I need understanding, not oh well, he's getting too big for the nip, KWIM? So my question for ya'll is....does this sound like weaning or just a strike? The refusal to nurse happened quite suddenly--he went from nursing all night and his normal nursing schedule to refusing to nurse in just a few hours.
