but all nite when DS tried or went to nurse he would for a sec and then pull off and scream it was horrid .. i mean i am up again because of this very thing. I can see milk is coming out but I am not sure how much. My period is due today and we did BD around O day so since it is not here yet i could be preggers.. my supply never really seemed to drop during all the AF i have had prior. He does not want water we tried a sippy .. his diaper just now from 11pm is dry DH has been consoling and trying to get him to sleep .. he is now rocking him in the rocking chair , he is asleep but I am worried<br>
what could it be ? the only weird factors are<br>
1. I am about to start AF or I am preggers<br>
2. I had a pepsi yesterday ( does caffenie affect supply?)<br>
3. Maybe his ears hurt or throat .. I do not know<br>
4. The diaper we just changed is dry after 7 hrs .. should we go to ER right now or wait ..<br><br>
Please help I am so hurt and do not want to wean so if I am preggers how do I keep the supply up .. or do i have to just offer more food so he is full ..<br><br>
Oh yea ds is almost 14 months old and we have never really had an episode like this <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:

It could be pregnancy or AF hormones.... Increase your water, add oatmeal and see how he does.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"><br><br>

Yeah, try. Though when I was pregnant dd was telling me that the taste was off (actually she said she didn't LIKE "moo" totally freakishly unusual for her <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">) about a week before I got a positive test.<br><br>

When my DD was a little older than yours (actually closer to 2) she would do that a lot. She wanted to nurse but then she didn't & would cry either way. It was weird, and it disappeared as quickly as it started. I almost thought it was some ambivalence about nursing on her part. Maybe there was a simpler explanation like milk did not taste good because of something I ate. Anyway, she still loves to nurse at 31 months, so -- it passed. Glad your DP is able and willing to spell you in comforting your DC while this is happening. I bet it is just temporary.<br><br>
Dry diaper after 7 hours -- no, I would not consider the ER yet. Kids begin having longer stretches between elimination, esp. at night, at this age.<br><br>
Good luck!!

Could he be teething? Maybe his mouth hurts and he wants to nurse but it's too painful. The timing's right for the molars and canines and all the rest--we've been dealing with this for months and months, sigh. If it looks like some teeth are on the way (swollen gums etc), you could try giving a dose of tylenol and see if that helps. The Hylands tabs didn't help much for us with these last teeth, though ds still loves them!
