Does norovirus affect milk production?

I’ve been really unwell with a stomach bug for the last few days and have barely managed to eat, just about managing fluids. Since I’ve been ill my baby has been BF-ing loads more- almost double the time feeding on one day. Is this a coincidence or could it be that my milk isn’t so good at the moment? Hoping baby doesn’t catch it too 🙏

Sorry to hear you’re not well SRK. I had the sane thing when I was feeding DD and I think my supply did dip. Have you tried some rehydration powders? I know I was dehydrated because I remember fainting so really try with the fluids, I know it’s hard when you feel rough.

The good news is though that your supply should be fine and your LO be will be getting all of those antibodies from you smile
