Suddenly stopped nursing? Updated in Red
Azariah will be 10 months the 6th of August! He has been super grumpy the last few days. Showing frustration, throwing fits, fussy, etc. This afternoon he refuses to nurse. Every time he latches on he hesitates and tries to bite down. I can see the look right before he does so, so I have avoided major injury but I am not sure what the deal is. He has 4 upper teeth and 3 lower. The 4th lower tooth doesn't appear to be coming in at this time. He does have a runny nose. But otherwise doesn't seem sick. Any thoughts??
Updated: Today has been much better! He laid down last night around 9pm without nursing. By midnight he still hadn't waken to nurse and I was leaking everywhere. So I woke him. He nursed REALLY well from both sides before passing out with a milk smile on his face. He then slept until this morning. Before we headed out to church he nursed well. Then again when we got home before he laid down for a nap. He got up and nursed again. And nursed two more times since then. I am about to nurse him one more time before he heads to bed. So he is nursing more then normal now, but really well! I am so very happy!!! And not once today has he tried to bite me THANK GOODNESS! Thank you so much ladies for all your help.
Two more quick questions...hormone changes change the taste of milk right? Could it be that my body is trying to have a period or ovulate or something and it changed the taste of my milk and he didn't like it??
Also with what happened yesterday I kinda stressed. My second son self-weaned at 15 months. I was pregnant so I think my milk changed, but he also was way to busy toddling to care. And my daughter selfweaned at 18 months. I am so not ready for Azariah to wean. I would love to nurse him until two, or maybe longer. Do you ladies do anything special to get your kids to continue to nurse? Or are some kids just better nursers then others???
