Nursing Strike HELP!!!

It all started last week w/ a double ear infection and now b/c of how much it hurt he's now refusing to even try and latch on! Did I mention he doesn't take a bottle either so we're stuck syringe feeding him. Anyone have any ideas?

Re: Nursing Strike HELP!!!

check for thrush...antibiotics can cause it.

Can you try a nursing holiday...easy access all the time for a couple days to the b***st to see if he will try.

Will he try a sippy cup (remove the valve so he doesn't have to suck at all)
