My 10 1/2 mos old son suddenly is refusing the breast and also refusing his pacifier that has been his best friend since birth! He puts it in his mouth occasionally but won't suck and then when it falls out he cries. With BF, he doesn't even try to latch, and now he cries when I try to get him in position.
I took him to the doc today who said he has fluid behind both ears and one is red so he's treating with amoxycillin.
I got a pump but only get about 2 ounces in 6-7 minutes. I was lucky to pump twice today and maybe I'll get another chance this evening. So, that won't be enough for him. The doc said to give him pedialite...
What if he never goes back to BF'ing? He's actually 11 mos on thurs so he'd only have a month or so left before I weaned anyway... would I have to give him formula for that time? How much breastmilk does an 11 mos old need?
Sorry for all the questions!
