A quick little update: Declan has been nursing again since Tuesday. All day Monday he would cry at a mere peek of the boob. After getting some wonderful advice from my good friend Gina, I had a new strategy to try to get Declan nurse. And it worked! Thanks Gina!! We've determined that it was a teething issue, though I still think my "scolding" him about the biting didn't help. It needed to be done, but it didn't make eating with a sore mouth any easier. He still gets his nibbles in, here and there, but a quick "No biting!" can usually do the trick. I still don't know if we will make it to a year, but at this point it seems we are not stopping now. I'm a little glad that I had to go through this though because I now I know how I'll feel when it actually does end, and I'll be prepared for that.....ish. :)
Happy 10 Months D!
I don't know if I ever posted this picture here. This was actually taken at 12 weeks.
