  • how old is she? some babies do this at a certain age, mine did around 4 months. try hydrating her,depending on age with pedalyte, i think you can use it 6 months and up not really sure, or try water in a sippy. she may not want to eat bc of her infecyion. did you try tylenol or motrin, it may help ease her so she can eat

  • When my daughter gets ear infections, her eating slows down. If your duaghter is on a bottle, it probably hurts so suck. antibiotics can also upset the tummy and make them not want to eat. Our pediatrician wasn't concerned either. Once, she had a throat infection along with the ear infections and it really hurt her to eat so he had her take motrin to reduce the swelling in her throat. That helped her a lot. Just stick with her. If after another day or two there is no improvement go back and demand a better treatment.

  • Just give her a little bit every hour and try a sippy cup. Sucking a bottle will make it hurt more. Or put a couple sips in a small cup and try getting her to drink that way.
