Thank You, Thank You!

Update on the nursing strike--Otis is fine.  He has sucked on a frozen washcloth and been fine.  When he really pitched a fit last night after a hot sticky day, we just gave him a bottle and he fell asleep.  I am not going to fret about it. 

I just want to say thank you to everyone who commented--it made me feel so much better knowing I wasn't the only one to go through it and that it was a small setback and not the end of our nursing!  Isn't it funny how you can get yourself so worked up thinking the worst case scenario?? 

I really don't know what I'd do without a computer.  My first thought when this happened was to write a blog post.  And I posted in a mom's group on Facebook.  And I went to some websites people had recommended.  It's amazing how a few hours later I had some feedback and felt so much better!  Thank you.

so glad to hear it's better. I assume it was teething then? I never experienced a teething strike with my first. He would pull away with my nipple still in his mouth during teething times and wow that hurt! I had to keep an eye on him during those teething times and hold his head so he couldn't do that.

I agree, I don't know what I would do without the computer! I would have been too timid to reach out for help any other way with my first. The info I found on the computer saved our BFing!

Good news and well done Mama.
I look forward to your post asking how to get him to STOP nursing. I spent so many of the early months worrying abut keeping it up, and ended up wondering if they would ever stop!
