Hi there, my Daughter just turned 6 months old, and pretty much refuses to nurse since she has been sick. I think what the problem is is that her nose is SO runny, that she is having a hard time being able to breath. She will sometimes latch on, take a few sucks, and then get mad. During the day (yesterday and so far today) she will only eat twice, but it seems that she is making up for it during the night (nursing every 2 hours or so). During the day, she doesn't seem hungry even, its mostly me trying to get her to nurse, and she just isn't hungry. She isn't irritable, and doesn't seem dehydrated the least bit.
Is there anything I can do to possibly get her to nurse more during the day? I'm worried that after this my milk supply is going to drop down after her illness and then I will have the problem of her not getting enough during the day when she has recovered.
