Ahhhhh - thanks. I am trying to make some time for online fun time again. :) Still boycotting my FB thing - too involved, I don't have *that* level of time to spare.



Missed you too! I see you have two now & nursing is still going strong! ;)

Ladies, my 12 week old is refusing to nurse anf has done so all night. He screamed all night until I got him to sleep. Now im trying to get him latched, he acts like he wants to. As soon as my nipple touches his mouth, he laughs and turns away. What's going in?! Im worried about him not eating. Plus im engorged and hurting but would hate to pump if he decides to eat.

Go ahead & pump a little to relieve engorgement. When is the last time he nursed? Have you tried stripping hm down, taking your top off & going some place warm & quiet? Try side lying. Try getting into a nice bath with him - that one always worked for me. Just keep an eye on diaper output - you need 4-6 soppy ones a day. If you are getting that, he will be fine to wait out for a bit & see if he'll just come around.

We ended up at the doc. He's not putting out much urine, and its dark and smelly. He hasn't ate in 18 hours

Waiting on blood results. No apparent reasoning. He us obviously hurting somewhere. If his white blood cell count is high we will be admitted to the hospital.

VERY sorry momma! In that type of case pumping at regular intervals is advisable to ensure your supply doesn't take a hit while he isn't nursing well & so you will be ready when he feels back to himself. Have you tried maybe a cup feed or the like to help get him to take in more fluids? That may be an option.

Thanks :) and it is, i'm so proud of us! DH keeps talking to people at work, and they keep telling him i need to wean him. Because he is super clingy to me and they keep telling DH he is only going to get worse. But i don't wanna :/ i hate that they are telling him this shit. I mean yes, it is hard to ever go out and leave him with anyone, and we rarely do and never over 5 hours. But I'm ok with that.
