Wow, I am still really having a tough time nursing Anna. She is just not loving it. I haven't had this much trouble since Colton was a baby. I weaned him at 9 months (my ob told me to) and both him and I were happier. If he had not told me to wean I probably would have struggled with it for as long as I could. Anna will not nurse on the right side...I try the different positions and holds and it is just not working. I end up pumping on that side. Jesse said that she is probably ready for solid foods. I am one that usually waits and doesn't go by the recommended "schedule" for feeding. But, I may try to give her some cereal and see if she is happier. She has been a difficult nurser since day 1 but have managed to get to 7.5 months. I am going to keep trying. I really want to make it to a year if at all possible. I love to nurse my babies for 2 years but it may not happen with her.
