Re: Night nursing when sick
My experience with my kids has taught me that they are always sicker at night, nursing or not. My 5 year old is always fine during the day but at night- that's when the pukies strike, and when she wakes up moaning and crying for me... I think the issue is really that at night it is so much harder for their little lungs and digestive systems to move and clear, and so much less to distract from the discomfort.
Do you want to cut out the night feedings? If so, you can. But it's not a guarantee that your LO will sleep better, especially when sick. Have you talked to the doc about the persistent ear infections? I'd want to make sure she doesn't need tubes or have an adenoids issue or something...
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
