Re: Nursing strike -- how did you get through it? (long)

My ds has done this a couple times, both when he was sick. After a few uncomfortable days for us both, he has always picked up nursing again with plenty of enthusiasm.
I found that me being super-full actually made it less likely that he'd nurse (day and night) - the more I pumped, the more he seemed willing to nurse a little (plus it kept up my supply). So in addition to pumping several times during the day, I would pump until I was almost completely empty before going to bed, so that he could nurse at night without getting flooded.
