Re: dropping a feeding or age of distraction?

I def. think she's probably just being distracted, don't worry if it begins to happen with a lot of the feedings. My dd went through the SAME thing at this time and we were at home. I'd def. try to take away anything that allows her to "suck" and that way she will be wanting to "suck" when you come. Also nursing in a Dark, quite room it will help a lot!! I know that's probably not possible for you if your going to her school to nurse but maybe you could find an empty room to nurse in. Also try different positions to nurse in. Ummm...it's REALLY difficult during this time but remember babies need the nut. from bm/f for at least the first 12 months and should only get solids as a supplement not a replacement!!

BTW to help with your milk supply you should pump if she doesn't nurse well for you during those times. Also try making up sessions later on instead of giving extra bottles or solids. I know the best place i FOUND TO NURSE (sorry bout caps) kaytlynn when she was going through this was in the shower. She'd nurse like a champ in the shower even if she wouldn't the rest of the day. I also started getting her up in the night for dream feeds to make up for lost sessions in the day. They will come around, she did and is doing GREAT now! Good luck. PM me if you've got any questions I'd love to help!!
