I BF and pump for my lo while I'm at work, so he doesn't supplement with formula. he does not eat solids yet either. 2 weeks ago we found out my lo had an ear infection. i thought BF was supposed to help with ear infections? he took his medicine for 10 days and just had another check and his infection still hasn't gone away. i've been trying to BF more often to keep his liquids up and to help the infection go away faster, but he hasn't been wanting to eat more than his normal schedule. in fact, he's been eating a bit less. now the doctor has given me another antibiotic for him. i just feel so bad giving him the medicines.
has anyone given their lo a probiotic? i've heard some good things about them recently and was thinking of trying that. also, my lo is 5 1/2 months old.
thanks for any advice, info, and opinions!
