7mth -teething sick and MAYBE nursing strike HELP HELP
update - so whats a nursing strike ? He is ethere to busy stairing at everything to nurse, goes in sucks a little and then pulls of to look at the room. he is wetting enough to not be worried but not as much as he was say 2 weeks ago. He is also pinching me my DD was such a easy nurser compared to him. He gets no food yet if that matters I tried to give him a bottle and he just chews on them i tried 3 brands so far and he has drank from them before for DH but its been a few months. I am getting frustrated and also worried i dont want ot be done nursing him yet.
ok ds is my second to ebf and he is 7 mths and he has been sick for like 8 weeks basicly back to back poor little guy and got his first 2 teeth = I also got my period this month and boy did mother nature make up for lost time it was BAD. Ihave noticed a my supply go down a little since al of this which is normal and he is a graser he gets distracted easy at the breast even the LC agreed !! so the last two days i decided to pile on the fenugreek and blessed thistle and pump allot and i am scared at what i am yielding HE is not acting hungry at all andhaving the right amount of wet diapers even more i think (how many a day again?) I offered him a bottle of BM last night and he just wanted to chew on it and play with it he has drank a few bottles in his life, but he wouldnt drink it ! so he must not be hungry but what about my supply should i be worried ??
oh and now i haveth cold too
oh yeah what does this mean while your pumping you feel a let down but no milk comes and say i keep pumping for 10 more min another let down but this time i get at least a oz from each ????
I also wonder since he grazes whe ni pump am i taking from him??
he sleeps in so i do get to pump 7 extra oz in the morning
