Hi Misty-


If it's a sudden refusal, it can often be an ear infection. Is that a possibility?


You CAN breastfeed on just the one side, if it comes to that. Yes, it might be a pain cosemetically, but it will work. There are tips here on getting baby to nurse again on the less preferred side. http://www.kellymom.com/bf/concerns/mom/lopsided.html


Follow up with addl questions, and keep up the great work mama!

Oh thanks! I'll check out kellymom! I completely forgot to look there! Thanks!


Its not a sudden refusal - she's been doing it for months its just that lately she's been refusing that side almost all the time. I'll keep my mom eye's open for signs of an ear infection just in case! Thanks!
