Hi,<br>
I really need some advice. For the past few weeks my ds has stopped signalling completely. We're also not catching the wakening pees anymore. We'll sit him on the potty and cue him, but he won't go. He doesn't mind sitting on the potty because he's discovered that he can sit - so he'll happily be sitting there playing for 10-15 mins. Then within a couple of mins of me puting a dipe on, he'll pee. I've tried moving the bblp into different rooms, also holding him over the toilet, but nothing seems to be working. Last Friday, I had him nakey butt all day, but all the gained me was a lot of cleaning e.g I answer the phone - he pees. I empty the washer, with him in the same room and he pees!<br>
We're also having a semi-BF strike - nursing = sleep which is bad! so I don't want to push the potty as I'd rather him go back to nursing properly.<br>
I don't know what to do? I feel like giving up but I'm horrified at the number of prefolds we're generating - it only used to be 2-3. Should I take a break?<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/help.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="help">

Is there anything new going on in your lives? Has DS reached or is he reaching any milestones? Is there anything that could be stressing him out?<br><br>
I haven't had to deal with this yet, so can't speak from experience. But I imagine the easy-to-say but hard-to-do answer is probably just to try to love and cuddle him as much as you can and do whatever it takes to feel connected to him again.<br><br>
Good luck! I hope things get better soon.

A few things help us sometimes - one is to turn on the tap at the sink when peeing there - the sound of running water seems to help. The other is to try outside if that's possible at all. I would just try to offer the same way you would as if there was no strike - don't offer extra or put on any pressure - and these times do pass. I've had tough times with nursing too when the only time he'd take the boob was after he'd just fallen asleep.<br><br>
HTH a bit,<br>
