I have heard of a nursing strike, although I've never experienced it with my son, but has your baby ever refused solids? For the past three days my 7month old that has been on solids for a month has refused to eat. I try different times of day, different foods, but he clamps his little lips shut and turns his head. Now, since he started, he has always eaten at least a little in the morning and usually a minimum of the equivalent of a small jar at dinner time. It seemed as if his appetite was really picking up and then all of a sudden "no" to baby food. He still seems to nurse with the same frequency but because it was out of character for him and I don't want him to start losing weight I took him to the Dr. yesterday. She said he's fine and is probably refusing solids because he's got some more teeth coming in. Has your baby ever done this? What did you do?
