I have no experience with this since my 1st ds nursed until he was 27 months. But Liam who just turned one last week on the 13th is not feeling well he has an ear infection in both ears so I think that is part of it but he has not nursed since Tuesday morning. I took him to the ER and got him on some antibiotics for the ears and also have been giving him Motrin for pain and fever but he is refusing to nurse. he screams and turns his head away and refuses. Even when he is asleep I try to trick him into it and he still will not even attempt to nurse.
I have been pumping to relieve engorgement and he will take a few sips of the milk in his sippy cup if its cold but even that he don't seem interested in. He wont eat any solids and water seems to be the only fluids I can get him to drink. Im afraid he will never nurse again anyone have any advice on how to get him to nurse. I hear stories of babies self weaning after 1 year or after getting sick.
