My 18 month old has been sick every few hours since 2.00am, should breastfeed her at lunch time?

I'm waiting for the doctor to phone me, in the mean time I'm not sure what to do about giving her her lunch and her breastfeed when I settle her off for her lunchtime nap? She was sick after milk this morning and after she had a digestive biscuit...she has been drinking sips of water. Can anyone advice? Thank you!

The advice I've always been given about diarrhoea and vomiting for mine when they were bfeeding was to continue to bfeed, even if its just little and often. Hope she gets better soon.

I'd carry on bf little and often. even if she does sick up again bm is so readilly absorbed she will still get something from it. Also you may find that she tollerated bm better than other liquids.
