Hi, she was sick every few hours very badly for a few days. She hasn't been sick since Monday now, she's still off her food apart from the odd strawberry and nibble of toast. She is still breastfeeding though and lots of them! She just spat out the pasta I tried her on. is this normal, is it just a matter of giving it time for her to recover her appertite? She used to eat very well! Thanks so much!
Very normal - mine was just the same. Doc told me to expect that - it's the same as when you get a nasty tummy bug, takes a while to get appetite back. She'll be fine is a few days - as long as she's getting plenty fluids. If things don't improve or she seems unwell/dehydrated or whatever, see the doc though.
Agree with EllieG. My DS was just the same - I kept offering him food & then i got it too and couldn't face the thought of food after being so sick! I felt bad trying to force DS after that! Her appetite will return. Maybe try things like crackers, breadsticks, toast or even some banana.
