DS2 is almost six months old and is fully bf.
DS1 was bf until 2 years 9 months. He's now four.
We all had a very nasty virus. We all got over it except for DS1 who can't seem to shake it. He gets better then worse then better then it comes back. It's been more than three weeks and it's getting him down.
He has been to the Dr who said we're doing all the right things.
He's literally never been sick before aside from a sniffle or teething fever. While he was bf he was exposed to everything and had fantastic immunity.
I've tried everything to help him get over this but nothing has worked. I'm considering trying to express a little milk for him to see if it helps, since I had the virus and got over it easily. I tend to have trouble expressing so if I can't I would offer him an actual feed, I'd just much prefer to express if I can and am unsure if he even could feed after all this time.
Has anyone offered a feed or EBM to their weaned child when sick? Did it help?
