Sorry if this topic has already been discussed elsewhere. The title really says it - my LO has been poorly for quite a while now. She had the sniffles a couple of weeks back and then on Monday this week, she's had a fever and full on cold. As a result, she went off solids pretty much and just wanted milk - understandable. However, now she's nearly recovered (allbeit still quite tired quicker than she normally would be) she's still off solid food and as a result, doesn't eat enough, cries (her voice is hoarse which could indicate a sore throat?) and generally wakes up more frequently at night. It's rather frustrating because as a reflux-baby, she loved solids and couldn't eat enough. Now, she e opens her mouth for it but doesn't swallow. If you're not careful, she'll have a full mouth - but still doesn't swallow for a couple of minutes! For those who have had a poorly baby, how long did 'off-food' last and did they suddenly wake up one day and was back to normal, happy as larry?
