I may not be posting this in the right place and I apologize if that's the case. My 5 month old has an ear infection :( When talking with her doctor she asked how I nursed her. I explained that at night I nurse her with us lying side-by-side. She told me I should not be doing this since it allows milk to pool somewhere in there and will make her more likely to have ear infections. Has anyone had experience with this? It's making me kinda stressed out because this is what works best for us and I do not see my little girl being okay with anything else at this point. While I would be okay with her sleeping in her own bed and not needing to nurse to sleep, I know she would not at this point. The doctor started talking about the Ferber method, but I quickly cut her off, saying there's no way I'm doing it.
So, if anyone has any insight or advice I would appreciate your input. Thanks!
