I'm sure this has been done before as so common. Its just I can't find a suitable thread.

My 13 month old has never really been ill before so not sure what to do.

Fever started Wednesday morning followed by one bout of sickness that afternoon. She saw doc just incase he said loads of fluids didn't mention food.

She's been having few bits of toast to chew on but not given her anything else substantial. She has been drinking milk (sma progress).

Now nappies are just liquid and white (just milk!) should I stop giving her any milk or food until better.

Only water??

She won't eat plain rice.

what if illness lasts lots more days - she will be starving.

If she will eat then feed her what she will eat. One bout of sickness two days ago should mean it is all gone now. If she will eat, fine, if not then she obviously needs to rest her tummy. I am a bit concerned about her nappies, though. Even if only having milk it should still be being digested to an extent, and should not come out of the other end resembling milk! Think about her stools when she was only on milk before you weaned. Did it look like that then? If not I would go to see GP. Good luck, hope she is feeling better now.

Think I'd hold off on the milk and solids for now , it sounds as if she isn't really tolerating it and you could well end up prolonging the bug. It is really common to get sickmenss followed a day or two later by diorrhea, so don't worry overly yet. Can you give her either water or get some rehydration sachets (Dioralyte?). Don't worry about food for now, as long as she is drinking and weeing, she'll clear it out in a few days and regain her appetite in time.

If it unusual, go to GP's. That is not normal IMO and can be indicative that something is wrong.
