Bub (10 months) has had a bad cold for about 3 or 4 days now. She is so blocked up that she can't breastfeed - yesterday afternoon and this morning I resorted to giving her a small sippy cup of milk (after trying for several hours to bf). She breastfed 4 times overnight (with difficulty). She won't even attempt to latch now. I'm so scared she's going to wean. I don't get anything from pumping, I've tried fess spray and aspirator, humidifier, Vicks etc. I'm out of ideas. Any suggestions on what else I could try??

The only other suggestion is to try feeding in a hot, steamy bathroom? I had to do this with my newborn when she had a cold.

I'd probably take her to dr for a check up. is she having solids? I remember my dd being blocked up and dr said it's ok for her to have dairy solids too.
