Hi mummies, my LO is 16 wks tmr and I have been latching him at night. However, the past 2 days he have been rejecting the breast and will cry when being offered. He is ok when being fed with bottle although still abit fussy and cranky. I'm feeling so sad that he rejects something that used to comfort him in the past. Any idea why is this happening? Thanks in advance!
