He only nursed once today! :(

I am 8 weeks pregnant and the past 2 mornings my son hasn't nursed, he just played in his crib when he woke and when I went to get him and lay him in bed with me to nurse he didn't want to, he just wanted to cuddle and get off the bed! All day I kept offering it to him and he would play and latch for a second but not want it. Finally before bed he nursed well. He did the same yesterday but nursed twice, not once! He isn't weaning himself is he? How can I help him get to nurse more often? BTW I am almost 8weeks pregnant. I am afraid if he doesn't nurse my milk is gonna be gone fast!

Re: He only nursed once today! :(

he might not be getting as much milk when he nurses because you're pregnant. Some women dry up while they're knocked up I would be in tears if I were you. My baby is only 4 months old but I already feel like I will be heart broken when she weans. He's pretty young to be weaning so maybe its just a temporary thing. Can you pump to keep your supply up? Don't give up mama, he might come around once the baby is born if you're comfortable with it.
