We just moved home and my 9 month old who is exclusively breastfed is refusing to feed all day. Hasn't had one feed. Any ideas on what I should do please??

When was the last successful feed?

When you say EBF do you mean no solids whatsoever? Finger foods? Anything at all?

No personal experience but didn’t want to leave this unanswered as I’m sure you are worried.

Have a look at the KellyMom website - it’s super helpful with everything bf related kellymom.com/ages/newborn/nb-challenges/back-to-breast/
The link should take you to the article about nursing strike.

Hope it’s useful. There’s loads of specific things to try smile Hope it helps, take care

My DD went on strike, I just kept offering but not forcing, then she came back around the next day. Has your baby eaten and drank through the day? You might need a comfort pump, hopefully it'll be a short strike
