He doesn't want to feed at all. His last feed was at 10 last night and he normally feeds every 2-3 hours, but he didn't feed all night and now not interested in feeding this morning. At what point should I be worried about this? He's had two big vomits this morning, but none overnight. I know they can deteriorate so quickly, but don't want to take him to hospital for no reason if he just needs cuddles and sleep and not being poked and prodded about
I had to pump one side at 5am as was really engorged. Should I pump at his normal feed times to maintain supply, or just pump a bit for comfort as needed? I don't want to pump so much that he has to work hard to get some when he tries to feed, but obviously don't want to have supply problems. Or will my supply be robust enough by now to cope?
Lack of wanting to feed when sick is normal in babies, as long as he doesn't get overly sleepy or floppy for want of a better word I wouldn't panic. Will he take a bottle for a bit of water? He may not want milk on an upset stomach.
If he's breast fed just keep offering him a feed every couple of hours or so. Don't worry if he's sick a bit afterwards, he'll get the hydration and nutrition he needs from your milk. Don't worry about offering water either, breast milk is perfect for him. Ring 111 if you're concerned, dd had had about 4 sickness bugs like this and she's only just 2. (And was bf til she was 1) it's so worrying seeing them poorly, but when they bounce back they do so quickly. I hope he's better soon.
Obviously if he's not interested in feeding at all then I'd perhaps ring 111 sooner rather than later.
