i'm devastated as i write this.<br><br>
yesterday ds (13months) started biting down (not really hard) and pulling off whenever i offered to nurse him. he wanted to nurse, but couldn't i have a feeling it'sis molars coming in since they are bulging and his cheek is red. so...he wouldn't nurse all day yesterday, even fell asleepfor nap without nursing...i almost cried.<br>
he did however nurseabout an hour before bed and he also nursed down for sleep and through the night,thank goodness.<br>
it's this not wanting to nurse during the day that is so hard.<br>
i gave him tylenol and motrin and teething tabs, and i gave him a frozen icepacktochew on and finally at 1pm today he nursed without biting and pulling off. i sat down to hand express into his sippycup and he got interested and wanted to nurse right away. that was relaly great, but now it's 2pm,he's exhausted and not wanting to sleep nor nurse.<br><br>
i guess i'm jsut looking for a bit of sympathy and to know that this willend at some point. neither of us are ready to wean, he normally nurses frequently and i can tell he's upset that he can't nurse.<br><br>
