Hi! My kids are 11 and 15 and haven't BF in years and years, but I have a question. If a child goes "on strike" and you keep giving them the breast, is it really up to the child? I might not know what you mean by going on strike.
My daughter was almost exactly a year old and I was babysitting a baby boy who had a bottle. She had just started scooting around the floor on her bum (never crawled!) and would not stop stealing his bottle and refused to nurse after a few days of that. I never could get her to take the breast again, but not for lack of trying and trying. So, a bottle was available (not offered to her) but she "weaned" herself by making that choice. She preferred the mobility of the bottle. She kept sleeping with me, but wouldn't nurse even then.
Is that not CLW because there was a bottle around, or is it CLW because she chose other "food"?
