Hello. My 9 1/2 month old seems to starting a nursing strike. I was hoping to nurse him until a year, but he is really not interested & refuses to feed unless he's practically asleep (I tried that in the night because my boobs were SO sore) or REALLY starving.... and even then, he'll only drink a little & push me away. Sometimes he'll nip me & push away when I try to get him to nurse. Not sure what I should do. He eats his solids very well & I only gave him a bottle for a month or two when I had to return to work (I pumped at work -long story), but that was more than 3months ago.
Any suggestions? I'm not ready to give up nursing just yet.
