Expert help needed for 10 month old
My daughter will be 10 months tomorrow. She had a double ear infection 8 days ago as well as flu like symptoms, fever, cough, sneezing, runny nose etc..She is on amoxi for 10 days. 2 more days to go. She is feeling a 100% better as of a few days ago. Throughout her illness she still nursed and ate solids like a champ. She nurses every 3 ish hours.
The problem, or maybe not a problem is the past two days(after she has felt better) she isn't interested in nursing. She would latch and suck for a minute and not want to be bothered. Then maybe the next feed she would eat, and the next she would not be interested. Is she telling me she doesnt want to nurse anymore every three hours but maybe every 5 hours. I dont know what to do. Leave it alone. Follow her cues!
I did try taking her into a dark quiet room to see if that was it and same. So I know she isnt distracted.
She is a quick nurser in general...usually done in 3-4 minutes.
How often should she nurse now? She eats three solids.
