I have a 2 year old daughter who I nursed until she was a year old. When she was teething I had no problem. Now I have a 5 month old little boy who is just starting to cut teeth on the bottom....he is refusing to nurse. I have had no problems nursing him until about 2 weeks ago. I have a pump for when I'm at work, but now i'm pumping 3-4 times a day. And my breasts still feel hard and kind of full like an hour after I pump (which I do for 12 minutes or so like I always have). I really want to strictly nurse when I'm at home, but he throws a fit and will only take the bottle. I feel like it's not ok to just pump, like it's not properly draining them like he would. Has anyone else had this problem or any suggestions on how to get through this rough patch??
