Re: Did I give my ds an ear infection?
I don't think so. Dd had lots of ear infections her first year. They came whenever she got a cold, and got to the point where she was congested all the time and her ears never cleared. She may have been nursing in bed with the first several, but the last one she had (before tubes) was the worst and she was sleeping in a crib, nursing less frequently, and not at all at bedtime. My ds also had horrible ear infections until he was over 2, and he stopped nursing at 6 months and didn't drink from a bottle after age 1. If he had any ear infections at all while he was nursing it was at most one or two.
