Thank you for the quick response, it was helpful.
Whe you say that he is eating oatmeal and veggies, how much is he getting?
Thank you for your site.
I had another thought when you said about keeping bf time more quiet. That’s a great idea to try but also you might try a nursing necklace. A nursing necklace is a sturdy necklace (you can make one or find one online) that has baby safe cord and beads or toys on it that the baby can play with during bf. It can help keep the attention of the distracted older baby so he is willing to bf.
Thank you so much for your time and help.
You may want to consider pumping to maintain/increase your milk supply if the baby is barely taking the breast. You may find he’ll take it more if your supply comes up also. Pump even if you don’t get good results b/c the stimulation will help.
