My son has always latched wonderfully while breastfeeding, since day one just a terrific feeder. A couple of days ago he came down with his very first cold and has been very uncomfortable. Today he almost refused to latch when I offered him the breast. Usually it is a great comfort to him, and if I let him he would nurse himself sick (he never over eats from the bottle) but today he wouldn't stop fussing long enough to eat for more than a minute or two.
His cold symptoms have been getting better the past couple days and we set up a humidifier in his room which seems to have helped but I'm wondering if anyone else has had this kind of problem with a sick kid or if it's something I should call his pediatrician about.
I have been giving him about a half dose (40mg) of tylenol once a day to help with his cold and aches, and just started giving him a vitamin D supplement
