Just a few questions. My daughter just turned one and has had ongoing ear infections since the beginning of January. She nurses frequently at night and get EBM (one bottle and 1 cup 4-8 oz total) plus food during the day. Her night feedings are almost always in my bed except her bedtime feeding is sometimes in the rocker. Should I feed her sitting up to help with her ears? I really dont want to as I work full time and I am really tired. My older daughter had a lot of ear infections too and ended up getting tubes at 2years (she has done great since the tubes with only one ear infection)but I did not nurse her as long so I guess I was hoping the with prolonged BF we would be able to avoid this. I know bottles lying down can contribute to ear infection but I was not sure about the lying down nursing.
