Re: How long is too long?

How long is too long?

We're on day 11 of breastfeeding strike (my daughter is 7 months and popped her first 2 teeth, one last week and one this week). She is still refusing to feed from me, but will take a bottle of EBM. I'm heart broken and want her back to the boobie so much! I'm wondering if anyone's had breast refusa...

Re: 7 month in..... can I fix this?

**wanted to add, she's always been fussy and I've always been nervous due to my past failure** Also, she's never really comfort fed, and although I offer the breast when she cries, she never really fed on demand either....so we've sort of fallen into a routine of feeding web she wakes....

Re: Not sure if it's an intolerance

Thank you! How interesting! I would have thought it would be better to avoid something if Bub seemed sensitive. Thank you as well Esther, I had thought lactose overload could be the culprit, but I was told that would be green frothy stools.... She doesn't have those.... But she does tend to only tak...
