I think its over, my son is 8.5 months old and for the last couple weeks he has really been refusing to nurse. He isn't upset about it, just pulls away. I know my milk supply has gone down, but he will turn away after only a minute or so and sometimes its in the middle of a let down. I know he is hungry! I have been giving him a bottle lately after trying to nurse him, and he will take the bottle no problem.
I'm going to keep trying, but does anyone know of a reason this may be happening? I haven't done anything different as far as soap, detergents, exercising etc.
I have quit pumping at work though, which is partly why I know my supply is down. I only work 4 days about 5 hrs a day. I was told your body will 'know' when to make milk and I could easily combo feed and nurse while we are together.
I'm so upset over this, I feel like such a failure....everything was going so well.
