5 1/2 month old nurses almost exclusivley. She only gets 3-4 bottles per week when I work. Today she pretty much refused the breast. She didn't seem overly fussy or hungry for the majority of the day and wasnt crying when she pulled off until her 6 pm feed. At that point I offered her a bottle b/c she seemed too frustrated at the breast to eat. Assuming it wasnt lactating properly I tried to hand express and was able to get a pretty good flow. Perhaps she was irritated that my let down wasnt happening immediately?
Going to the doc tomorrow to check but could an ear infection make her be okay with a bottle and not breast?
also, when I tried to pump I wasnt producing but 1 oz. - when i pump away from her I pump 5-7 oz.
