BF is always fine, no matter how sick they are.

He may just want BF now, which would be wise of him, it's the best thing for him.

Psychobabble, when my dd had a vomiting bug the doctor said to bf little and often. Don't let him feed for too long as his stomach is irratated and he will bring it up again, but a little bit frequently will stop him getting dehydrated, and I think breastfmilk is much less likely to cause a problem than cows milk.

Hope that helps

bf on demand as he wants - it's easy on the system - plus if he vomits it wont smell bad!!
