Nursery and d&v

My baby (11 months) has just started nursery. Friday she had a tummy bug - vomited about 5 times in 2 hours and then recovered. However since then her poos have been a bit diarrhoea like. Not more frequent than normal (2-3 a day) but very loose.

This happened before when she was about 5 months old and it lasted about 5 weeks - the doctor said she wasn't actually still ill (did all the tests) it was just her gut getting used to processing food again after being ill. It also knocked her ability to process lactose out for a while so we had to switch to specialist milk.

From research grotty nappies often last for a month after a bug. Can I not send her to nursery for all that time??? Or do they mean constant poo every hour when they say diarrhoea?

I'd still send her if the GP says she's fine smile

Could you switch it to lactose free milk again? This happened to my DD and the nappies went back to normal within a day of switching formula.

This happened to us recently, I advised the nursery what the doctor said and to expect runny nappies for a while and all was fine. It went on for three and a bit weeks for us, it had made our Dd a little intolerant to her soya milk, so we mixed it with water so that it had less milk and that helped. My DD is 22 months though.
