Re: Nursing strike?

I would think so. To me it sounds like he didn't like the change in taste while you were menstrating (alot of babies I've heard don't) and doesn't want near the breast because he doesn't trust that it's back to normal. I'd try to frequently coax him to try the breast so he can see it's not what he fears. And would just plan to power pump and dry nurse him next cycle.

But I didn't get my cycle with the boys until after weaning and with dd she seems to like it as she wants to nurse more often and with a fury at that time of the maybe another mama who's been through it could help you more.
Mama to DS1 9/21/02, DS2 3/11/04, DD 12/2/05, and DS3 9/19/07; and our little angels Emmalita Cae d. 2/17/00 and Alexander Cole d. 9/22/02; DD2 and DS4 9/10/09
