At 10.5 months nursing would be pretty ingrained in her so I don't think she would forget how.
Another thing to try is lots of skin to skin. Have a bath together, spend the day in bed with lots of free access. This one may be harder with a bub who is probably active but depends what they like doing. Ds loves splatting on my bed so we can often spend a couple hours playing on my bed.

It might be a long shot... But could you be pregnant again? I remember My ds refused feeds when I fell pregnant. I researched and apparently the milk tastes different and the increased colostrum isn't as pleasant tasting to older babies.

Also isn't it common for babies to strike when AF is due in town. The milk tastes different from the hormone shift. The early childhood nurse said it would just be for a day or two before and maybe a day into AF that they can be turned off.

No, not pregnant. I had a negative hpt.
Dd has two sleeps per day. Should I try and give her a dream feed during the day? I run the risk of her waking properly and then there goes her sleep (and her being hysterical) but if she latches it would stimulate supply and hopefully subconsciously she would remember that she gets milk from me? Would you do it?

Why not ring the ABA or the early childhood centre? They might have some good tips?

Thanks,I just rang the aba and spoke to a lady who said it was completely normal and only time will tell if she'll come back to the breast or not. Which makes me feel a bit better that's it's normal but doesn't help me fix it!
Dd is asleep now. Am off to try and give her a dream feed. Fingers crossed.

I also think I'm a bit emotional at the moment because af is due tomorrow too. I've been on the verge of tears all morning. This sux! Hurry up af and be over and done with and dd please please start feeding again

Oh my gosh she fed again. She woke up properly at the end of her feed and is awake now but oh my gosh she fed. Her eyes were open towards the end of her feed too and she kept nursing. I'm speechless.
I think I will continue giving her feeds like this for a few days and hopefully she'll continue taking them. Fingers crossed, a long way to go yet but there's hope!
Thanks everyone so much for all your help xx
