Anyone breastfeeding and finding that LO really is not quite so interested anymore.

Ellianna is the 3rd child I breastfed. My boys each until 15-18 months. They would nurse anytime it was offered - even 20 minutes after a marathon session. Recently, Ellianna is picky about when and if she nurses (or even takes a bottle). For instance, she got up and nursed last night at 3:30. I tried nursing her this morning at 7:15 before I left for work. Completely uninterested. Now tht was nearly 4 hours so she should have been a little hungry. She used to take 16-20 ounces (or more) from a bottle while I was at work. Yesterday, it was a fight to get 6 1/2 ounces into her between the hours of 7:30 and 5:15. She had a 2 ounce (yes, just 2) at 4:20. She had no interest in nursing until about 6:00. She seems to only want to nurse at night when it is very quiet.
