My 10 month old has refused to nurse for 2 days now. I think she objects to the taste of antibiotics in my milk. I've had a killer sinus infection for a while now and when I noticed blood in the mucus (sorry tmi) I decided it was time to get the meds. But a few hours later DD was refusing to nurse. Do you think I will be able to get her back on the breast after I'm done the antibiotics? I got the okay from my doctor to stop taking them early, 24 hours after symptoms dissappear (as opposed to 10 full days). But for now I've been pumping with my manual pump (and I don't always letdown for it) and giving her milk from the freezer. I have enough for maybe 3 more days. She will drink the expressed antibiotic milk too, but she doesn't drink much of it and makes 'yuck' face while drinking it. She won't latch at all.
I am so not ready to be done nursing and I don't think she is either! Until 2 days ago she was nursing 6 or 7 times a day, eating a small amount of solids 3 times a day. She doesn't nurse at night or nurse to sleep.
any advice would be great, I've been just beside myself. My son nursed for 19 months without any incidents!
