Re: Just returned to work - Baby only wants to eat when I hold her
I didn't have to go back to work as soon as you did, but I did run into a slightly similar problem with my LO at that age. His deal was he wanted to suck. And suck. And suck. Eventually, he'd be totally full of milk and he'd urp everywhere. Then he'd want to suck, and would get mad that milk was coming out, because he was so full. So finally, we figured out that after he was totally full, slipping the binky in his mouth would allow him to lay in my arms, fulfill his sucking needs, and relax. I think this only works if your nursing relationship is totally healthy, which it sounds like yours is!
