Refusing to feed
When Miss A was only 7 months old she weaned herself overnight. Suddenly she didn't want a bar of me, completely refusing feed and biting anytime I got near her. It was painful (physically and emotionally) to say the least, but I had no choice, she became a bottle baby.
So far feeding Baby Girl has been going really well. She was gaining weight and doing all the things she should. However, things have changed. Over the last few weeks she has not put on any weight and now she is plainly refusing to latch. The monkey! It looks like she has taken lessons from her big sister and Mamma is not at all happy about it. Pray with me that she will continue to let me feed her. Weaning before mother and baby are ready is difficult and not something I thought I would have to deal with twice.
