My son who has been breastfeeding since birth just decided one day he didn't want to nurse anymore!! Saturday he was nursing every feeding, then Sunday, he refused. We were at the fair all day on Sunday and he hadn't eaten for 6+ hours. I kept trying and trying and he kept shaking his head and pulling away every time I tried nursing him. It was really strange because he has always loved the boob! Finally, I made him some formula and he downed 8 oz! So for 3 days, he has refused to nurse... So I guess he weaned himself? I have been pumping and giving him the milk, but I'm wondering if he's just done with nursing altogether. I try a couple of times a day just to make sure, and he wants nothing to do with it. He has had a fever since late Sunday night, so I was thinking maybe that was the problem... But wouldn't he be more attached?
So my question is, do you think I should continue to try to nurse him? He fights me every time I try, so I don't want to upset him... And he's 9 months today, so maybe he's just done with it. Any similar situations? Thanks!
