He is refusing to nurse.

Oh crap.

I'm gone for 5 days and the boy refuses to nurse. REFUSES.

I'm pumping to keep up supply, but this is horribly aggravating.

That sucks, Nancy! Hopefully he's just and at you for leaving and will get back to nursing soon.

Oh no! I'm sure he'll get back to it soon.

Please don't say that! I'm having issues as well and am taking a break to let my poor nipples heal. (Did I mention that I had a baby? You probably haven't read about that yet... :) Anyway, I'm counting on him still being willing to try in a few days!

Oh no--that sucks!

It's probably temporary--he may be upset that you were gone so he's being defiant.

Otherwise, Kellymom (which I'm sure you're aware of) is a great site for help with any kind of breastfeeding issues.

*hugs* Good luck!!!!!

Hang in there and keep trying. I have the opposite problem - Teddy won't take bottles unless he's totally desperate and after an hour's worth of crying.It makes being apart very difficult.
Give it time - I'm sure he's missed the boobies.

Oh Suck! no pun intended. I'd be so sad. =*(

Robin said...

Oh no! Maybe he's just on strike to let you know that he missed you..

Kerry said...

That sucks! Hopefully he calls off the strike soon.

No!!! I hope it's just a temporary strike & he's back to the boob really soon!
