Re: Suddenly no milk, will not take bott
Sorry things are so rough right now! Here's what I would do:
- Nurse as much as possible, keep switching breasts. Baby can probably get more out than you think, though it may cost her more effort than usual and she may be very fussy. Frequent nursing will bring your supply back faster than anything else.
- Stay hydrated. When you're sick it's easy to forget to drink enough.
- Offer baby plenty of healthful solid foods and sippy cups of water. That should help fill any holes in her diet. If you're concerned that she's missing out on dairy, you can offer lots of yogurt and also cow or goat milk.
- Watch diaper output. As long as baby continues to have wet diapers, you know she's staying hydrated and that's really enough for a 13 month-old baby. You don't need to worry that she will starve, because at 13 months she has a lot more reserves than a younger baby.
