    The best thing to do is to keep breastfeeding! Whatever is causing it, breastmilk will be the best thing to help it!

    Don't stop nursing her and call your pediatrician in the morning.

    It could be a virus, or a reaction to something in your diet, but in neither case would you need to stop nursing. Breastmilk is the best medicine when your baby is sick and if it ends up being a reaction to something you are eating, you can remove the allergen and continue breastfeeding successfully.

    Let us know how she is doing.

    please do continue to feed your baby - as Karen has said the breast milk will only help if there is an illness. Please seek medical advice regarding the blood in the stools.
