Nursing strike? Sweeten the deal.

Here's how Tiffany ended her son's nursing strike:

Baby on a nursing strike? This sometimes happens around the nine month mark and is supposed to take two days to clear up.  Two LONG days of a hungry baby and a frustrated mom. We made it a day before I tried this trick: put a dab of syrup on your nipple and offer. It worked for us!

I ended a 6day(!) strike with my son at about 13 months by letting him fall asleep while holding him in the bath with me. I then attempted to get him to latch and he sleepily did and nursed like crazy!! Something about the bath makes them want to nurse, but when that didnt even work getting him unaware while sleepy worked great.

Has great tips for nursing strikes!

Great solution!
