My 8 month old won't breastfeed. Well, he has a horrible cold and fever - is on amoxicillan (sp?) and also been giving tylenol/motrin for fever. But just today he will not latch on at all and starts hysterical crying when I put him to the boob. - Have tried quite a few times. And it is not that he is not hungry because right after my DH will try a bottle and he will drink from that ok. We have never had this issue before where he refused the breast. Is this normal? Will he go back? I even tried different positions thinking the lying down might be bothering him - but he wants no part of the boob- gets upset by the sight of it? What is going on????
I put this in extended bf too, just wanted to get the most possible replies.
