Alasdair has always been a super fan of the breast. He'll nurse when he's hungry, bored, full, tired, excited ... anytime, anywhere. Until today.
A little history of our past week (I'm telling this in case it has everything to do with his sudden dis-taste for my breast):
We went to Vegas for six days. Just got back yesterday. I am sick. Maybe he's sick, too? I think it has to do with all the smoke in the hotels, etc.
Anyway, he nursed great yesterday. He was in a great mood on the trip. Then today, he got upset. When I went to put him down for his morning/early afternoon nap he bit me. I jerked, he wouldn't nurse.
... he cried and threw himself around until finally he fell asleep. When he woke up, I was there and he nursed, happily.
Then tonight, I went to lay with him for his late afternoon nap and he would not eat. I pumped some into his sippy cup and he loved that. He cried and cried for about 40 minutes (which is A LOT of crying for him. He's a very happy baby.), then finally fell asleep.
I know he's teething (he has his bottom two teeth), and I think he may be sick.
How would I detect an ear infection?
What can I do next time he refuses the breast? I hate that ...
