Hiya, My little 9 month year old daugher was sick last nite and at 7am today. Rang doc and he said that she shouldn't eat anything or have any milk for 24 hours BUT she is screaming the house down because she is starving hungry now - what should I do?? She has been drinking water all day so is hydrated. Argh!!!! Don't know what to do!

I'm probably wrong but I used to give my babies the milk if they were screaming for it, during a sickness bug, however I used to water it down as much as I could

up to date advice is to feed if they are hungry and not to starve them. Starchy foods are good to give and I would continue with milk feeds too.

If she's not been sick for 12 hours then I'd be giving her the milk she wants
