My 11 month old son stopped nursing overnight. Now he just pushes the breast away and turns his face. He has been exclusively breastfed except for the first week when he was born.

The pediatrician says that he's ready to give up the breast,,,,but I'm not!! Its a sad feeling......

Any advice or tricks I can try will be appreciated.
Thanks,
Tejal

I didn't breastfeed but I have heard that babies go through nursing strikes and that if you just keep trying they will start again. I am sorry I am not more help.
