i wrote in another thread the sickeness that ds is going through, but he won't nurse? he may have roseola, so i am not sure if that has anything to do with it (again all in the other thread) but since the yesterday ds will barely nurse. he will latch on suck for a second, then quickly look away, he's been doing this, oh-and he smacks his lips, a new thing- well i just expressed about a ounce of milk, and he ate it all from a dropper! should i continue to do that since he doesn't want it form me directly? or will that make him want that all the time? i don't want to starve him?

Hey Mamabee
I am so sorry your ds is sick. I would continue offfering your brest and nursing. How old is your ds? How long has he not been wanting to nurse? How long has he been sick? I hope he is feeling better soon and back to nursing well. Keep us updated.
