Possible nursing strike??

My 8 month old son has been refusing to nurse...he will try to sit up and he will turn his head away, he will start to fuss and squirm. After a while of try to get him to take it i will rest wait a little then offer it agian...but eventually i gave him some baby food. well tonight before I put him down he took it but after a little of a fuss. then he woke up and fought me nursing him again so i left our room and went to the living room...i offered him the right and he refused it..i offered him the left and he took it...I then offered the right one again and he then took it. He just woke up again and he wouldn't take it but thankfully he went back down....any ideas or suggestions?

p.s. I can't pump cause I don't pump anything and he hates formula so me giving up nursing is not an option...i need help and suggestions!!! thanks
I also think he may be teething his molors..he already has all front 8 teeth...

  • He will eat when he is hungry. I can't believe your son has teeth already, my son is almost 10 months old and still has NONE. LOL
