Ds woke last night at 10pm being really sick. He had also pooed in nappy, while on changing mat he then did huge diorreah poo all over mat- .

Gave some water and he went back to sleep and woke at 4 for a small feed.

Since 7 he has had two more diorreah poos. He is very sleepy had some more little breast feeds.

Had thought about offering small amount of baby rice and banana later - is that a bad idea or continue with just offering milk an water.
when ds was sick few months back doctor said to keep offering food as starvation was not recommended anymore.

I would just offer plenty of breast feeds personally unless he seems particularly hungry.

Thanks DaisyMOO,

ds is alternating between dosing and feeding on me at the moment. Not interested in food which is very out of character. Stomach is gurgling away.

poor thing

If he is breast fed continue with just that until he has settled for at least 12 hours or seems hungry for bland foods.
