My DS (8 months) was having two BF a day. He got really sick with hand foot and mouth this week, he stopped taking the bottle and BFing 4 days ago. He must have had ulcers in his mouth so I've been feeding via an eye dropper and a nurofen applicator. I've been expressing to maintain my supply. He took the bottle for a bit tonight for the first time in 4 days but he won't BF. He pushes me away or just lies there with it in his mouth, like he doesn't know what to do.
Has he forgotten what to do? I've got a feeling our BF journey is over. Has this happened to anyone? Do you think he'll BF again?
