My almost 8 month old has now been on a nursing strike for several days and it's becoming very frustrating. Is he done with me or is this just a phase. He did this before and after it was all said and done it seemed to be related to teething. It could be the same this time but things are a bit different. It started out at our night feeding and has now progressed to all feedings. I have then pumped and he takes it fine from the bottle. I work full time so I have been pumping anyway. He is on solids three times a day and nurses/takes the bottle four times a day. My milk has been decreasing for months and I have had to supplement with formula. Should I just give up? I feel like I could be done but I really wanted to make it to 9 months (just a personal goal, ha). Is this just his way of saying he is done.....do they wean themselves from BFing?
