Poor little mite, hope she is ok???? And yes I'm sure you can keep breast feeding, its only formula and cow's milk that you must be wary of....

Keep bfing Socci - you've probably been exposed to the virus too and your body will be making antibodies for her in the milk. You'll be helping her get better. Agree with lots of water in between feeds and avoiding everything else.

Definitely just sips of water or dioralyte but you should be able to continue to bfeed if she'll take it. Perhaps get some other fluid down her first and if she can hold that in then offer her bfeed a bit later.

Keep breastfeeding, I think, if she'll take it. And if not, then the tiny sips recommended. Sometimes we've found that there's just too much stuff (water, whatever) in his stomach for him to process and up it all comes. There are also anti-emetic suppositories which have been very helpful for my son. Don't know the name, sorry, but if you're still worried (and I hope she's getting better!) maybe ask your gp.

sorry socci, i disappeared for a bit there. do keep bfeeding, it's one of the (many) joys of bf that you can help your child when he/she is sick. dd2 has an ear infection and for the last few nights it's the only thing that has comforted her (she's 23 mths)
