most likely unrelated to your breastfeeding position

Hey mommy!

Have you been to your doctor about it?

Breast milk should not cause any ear discharge and is often used inside the ears because it is antibacterial.

So, there is no need to breastfeed in a different breastfeeding position. My guess is that your little one has an ear infection unrelated to your breastfeeding position.

Breastfeed as much as possible during this time, so that your baby will receive all the immunity needed to fight the infection.

Kind regards
