He's refusing to nurse or take bottles. I'm pumping as often as I can, but only able to express an oz or two each time. I used to be able to express 8oz in a go early on.

He's refusing liquid from any means (cup bottle, etc) so I'm syringe feeding him all I express and water as well.

I don't know if this is just waiting him out til the teeth break through - I can see them, it's a matter of days, and his nose unstuffing.

I'm concerned about my supply and getting him back on the breast. he'll bf at 3am, but that's it.

any suggestions? I'd be so sad if bf ended this way. we had such a hard start qnd I never expected to make it this long.
