My nine moth old dd is sick, sick, sick. She has a miserable cough, runny nose, and I am guessing sore throat. I was really sick last week and I was hoping that she wouldn't get it- no such luck. Yesterday was an absolutely miserable day- she only slept six hours the night before and then was up all day long. We couldn't get her to sleep for anything, and we tried everything! She's feeling a little bit better tonight, but I'm concerned because she doesn't want to eat anything. She's almost exclusively bf, but everytime I put her to the breast, she arches her back and screams. I've only nursed her four times today, and none of those times lasted longer than three or four minuts. I had to pump this morning because I was so engorged, and I get sixteen ounces in ten minutes! It just shows me how much she's not eating! Anyway, my question is, when do I get concerned? She won't take a bottle, period, and she wouldn't touch any solids whatsoever. She's a big girl- off the charts for weight and stuff, but I get so sad thinking that my little one isn't eating! Any suggestions? I'm hoping that she feels better tomorrow and spends the whole day at the breast...
